Classic sweet treats with a fun twist
On Sunday, I had the pleasure of consuming a few fun treats from Masterchef legend Poh Ling Yeow's Jamface store at the Adelaide Showground Farmers Market.

Blue skies, sweet treats: Jamface by Poh at the Adelaide Showgrounds Farmers' Market

While I had to wait in line for over ten minutes, it was worth the wait. The treats that I bought (a hazelnut brownie, a frangipane tart, a Jamaican ginger cake and a cherry ripe) were small, sweet, bite-sized packages of fun. I thoroughly enjoyed the myriad of flavours and textures on offer.

The hazelnut brownie had an enjoyably fudgy consistency and was chocolatey and nutty in taste. The frangipane tart was melt-in-mouth soft and sweet. My favourite, the cherry ripe was so delicious, with its unique slightly bitter chocolate base and caramel overtones, that I will never buy the store-bought version again. Finally, the subtly (not) titled Jamaican ginger cake was a beautifully balanced gingerbread tasting delight, offset with a cute dollop of cream.

While I didn't get to taste the milly filly (it was sold out for the third week in a row), I had an otherwise great time. I highly recommend you come and try out Jamface by Poh.
