WHAT’S TEAM FRIDAY UP TO?
I’ve been making macarons – or at least watching Friday readers make macarons, and sticking my fingers in bowls of chocolate buttons and pistachio paste as they laboured. We have just completed the very first Friday Masterclass, and I hope it’s the first of many to come. Six winners and their guests were invited into the professional pastry kitchen at Jumeirah Emirates Towers for a private session with the amazing Dhany Arbendwi Putra – the in-house cake artist and baking know-it-all. It was a great morning – we hope you join us at a Masterclass soon! Natalie Long, editor As Mother’s Day falls in the same week as my father’s birthday, we celebrate the two occasions together. For this year, we are having an expensive choice of gifts. And for the cake, we’re replacing it with this stunning Mother’s Day special from Memz Bites. Zahra Allowatia, design trainee
