A reader, who has become a dear friend, is the executive pastry chef/consultant for the Cravings Group of Companies which includes WICKED among others. CHRISTINE PAREDES went abroad for a short stint for a career change but is now back in her homeland, refreshed & renewed. I was very eager to see her upon her return & give her a warm hug after just writing to each other back & forth for some time while she was away. So when Richard invited me to have lunch at Kettle a couple of weeks ago, I made sure I will get to see Chris that day. I’ve missed her so. <3
Stepping inside WICKED is like being right outside the confectionery house of the witch in storybook Hansel & Gretel. You just wanna grab the treats left & right and eat them all. <3 Good thing I had Chris’ permission!
All these treats are whipped up by this dream team whom I have declared my BFFs! ;)
Wicked Shangri-la Plaza Mall
Chris prepared so many wonderful treats for us to try that afternoon..
I will never forget how Chris reached out to me by sending me a long email introducing herself a while back. We have become penpals & fast friends since then.
Thank you so much CHRIS & WICKED for having us. It was truly an afternoon well spent catching up with new & dear friends.
By the way, please allow RICHIE & I to greet MAE who was supposed to come & meet us but cancelled at the last moment because she had to take her mother to the hospital. Don’t worry Mae there will be many more opportunities for us to meet & bond. :-*
