About 4 years ago I met Nikolaos at a food appearance in the department store Magasin, and since then I have regularly followed Nikolaos many activities. Also, I do have a weakness for gourmet cakes.

As always it is a pleasure to visit the store. In the pastry room everybody was busy making different kinds of dessert cakes.

dengang har jeg jævnligt fulgt med i Nikolaos mange aktiviteter. Derudover har jeg også en svaghed for gourmetkager.

Som altid er det en fornøjelse at besøge forretningen. I selve konditorlokalet havde alle travlt med at lave forskellige slags dessertkager.
Jeg lod mig i stedet blive forført at de mange skønne kager i disken, og valgte bestille en af de eksklusive kager. Valget faldt på ”Strangas pure nordic. Ren mørk chokolademousse lavet på 70 % Valrhona chokolade, afbalanceret med en frisk letsyrlig havtorn & mangomousse”.
