Pop quiz: What did Ina bake Jeffrey for Valentine’s Day? A) her famous brownie pudding, B) a gorgeous mixed-berry pavlova or C) mocha chocolate icebox cake?
Trick question! The answer is D) none of the above. In fact, Queen Ina didn’t bake anything at all for V Day. She actually just bought a box of chocolates like the rest of us.
Instead of trekking to CVS, she classed things up with a box of Belgian truffles from “haute chocolaterie” Pierre Marcolini. You can snag a similar box for about $30 from the company’s U.S. website. Flavors include matcha, passion fruit, nougat, lime, pistachio and caramel. It’s OK if you devour everything in one sitting. Ina basically gave you permission.
