Pippa Cuthbert is a New Zealander living and working in London. Ever since childhood she has been passionate about food and cooking. After studying Nutrition and Food Science at Otago University in New Zealand and working in the test kitchen of Nestle New Zealand, she decided to travel the world in search of new and exciting culinary adventures. Now based in London, Pippa works as a food writer and stylist on books and magazines, and is also involved in advertising and commercials.
Food and writing are Lindsay Cameron Wilson's passions, so she blended the two at university where she studied History, Journalism, and the Culinary Arts. She has since worked in the test kitchens of Canadian Living Magazine in Toronto and Sunset Magazine in San Francisco. In 2001 she left her job as a food columnist in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and moved to London. That's when she met Pippa, and the work for their first book, Juice! began. Fuelled by juice, the two moved on to Ice Cream!, Soup! and now Barbecue! Lindsay continues to work as a food journalist in Canada, where she now lives with her husband, James, and son, Luke.
I'll never forget the day I first tasted grilled angel food cake with a dollop of chocolate cream. Nothing has really been the same since. Of course you can make your own cake if you prefer, but store-bought is the simple and guaranteed-to-be fluffy option.
- 8 fat slices store-bought angel food cake
- 1-2 Tbsp confectioners sugar, for dusting
For The Chocolate Cream:
- 8 Tbsp confectioners sugar
- 4 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 1 cup (250ml) heavy cream
- 1 pinch cream of tartar
To make the chocolate cream, whisk together the confectioners sugar, cocoa powder and milk in a small bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, beat the cream with the cream of tartar until soft. Whisk in the chocolate mixture until well blended. Cover and refrigerate.
Preheat the grill or grill pan to hot. Dust the angel food cake slices with confectioners sugar. Grill the slices for 1 minute on each side until golden and grill marks appear on the surface. Transfer to serving plates and top with chocolate cream.
