Looking south along the Pacific Coastside at Montara State Beach: 

Can it get better than this?!

Mid-Summer’s Devil’s Dream Chocolate Cake

Summer is zooming by fast, and what a season it has been! Our book has been a success, and we’re so happy it has given those who have visited a pictorial memento of our beautiful Coast.

While we have been busy working on various projects, we’d like to take a moment to feature this wonderful dessert that makes any day perfect. Since my all time favourite cake is a Devil’s food cake, I cannot resist posting this incredibly moist and deeply decadent indulgence. I call it the Mid-Summer’s Devil’s Dream Chocolate Cake. What would summer be without a rich, chocolate repose? Accompany it with an icy cold glass of milk or a helping of good vanilla ice cream, and life is good.

Take a trip down our Coastside…

Just beyond The Tunnel, winding past Devil’s Slide, a quaint community awaits.

This book is a visual and gastronomic tribute to the beauty that lies along this dramatic Pacific coastline.  

What better place to stop a while, savour a cup of coffee, and a morsel of dessert? Maybe you, too, will fall in love with our Coastside.

If you are lucky enough to live here, or have a chance to visit, you will understand how life here on the Coastside, where the forces of the Pacific ocean meet the Cypress bluffs of the coastline, can put everything into perspective. There is nothing like Mother Nature to give you a sense of coming home.

 Having spent hours taking photographs amidst empty beaches, beneath towering Cypresses, and overlooking endless bluffs, I am reminded by that insightful Shakespeare, who wrote, “Life’s but a walking shadow; a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more.”

And, in the meanwhile, we are working on our next project, but will take time to post new desserts when we can.  Enjoy!
