Chocolate Fondant NOMU Style
Last week Wednesday I was invited by NOMU to attend an “afternoon of irresistible treats”, as per the invitation so tantalizingly phrased it. And what an afternoon of decadence and spoiling it was. Thank the Pope I never ate lunch, as per the invite suggested with a somewhat sneaky-effective-luring “p.s” (typed at the bottom of the page). Having skipped lunch and walked from Cavendish Mall (yes, you read right), ALL THE WAY to Winchester Avenue, Bishops Court, to Ottimo Ciba, where the event took place, I was more than comfortably hungry – to be frank I was bloody starving.
On entrance, worryingly sweaty and with disheveled hair, (the walk was frightfully hilly and LONG), I was warmly greeted by Paul (husband to NOMU creator, Tracy), who handed me a name badge and ushered me to the room where the “irresistible treats” where to be found and the mystery behind the invite was revealed.
