April 2012 Carol is invited to the United Arab Emirates hosted by the Department of Culture and Information to demonstrate the art of making cup cakes.

Carol Pastor takes a two day break in a fascinating city notable for its extraordinary cultural heritage, a heady mix of shops and wonderful coffee houses you are seriously tempted to stop in every half- hour for 'Kaffee and Kuchen'.

Gastronomic Lille
Carol Pastor visits Lille to delight in duck confit with sweet ginger biscuits, waffles, local beer and smelly cheeses and meets some passionate French foodies in the Flanders hills.

Cooking With Calvados
Carol Pastor visits Normandy, one of the great gastronomic regions of France to seek out the Cider Route in the heart of the Pays d' Auge where you're never far away from a glass or two of this famous amber nectar; that seems to find its way into many Norman dishes.

A Christmas Carol

Vanilla Sky
The Journal magazine - Cambridge
It may be a little extravagant but baking a vanilla pod in the golden domed surface of the cake - looks very attractive and informs the lucky recipient of it's pure flavour. See Carol's recipe for French vanilla loaf cake with white vanilla chocolate icing.

Inspirations magazine
Carol Pastor moulds new styles on a old favourite with her guide to making the freshest fruitiest jellies, which she combines with edible flowers and hand painted Art Deco china, to make truly picturesque summer desserts.

Fresh Fig Feature
The Journal magazine - Cambridge
Fresh figs prized for their luscious blush - pink flesh make wonderful additions to a Proscuitto and mozzarella salad, or a creamy goat's cheese mousse, and for those who are quite partial to a spoonful of good jam Carol invites you to bottle up her quick 10 - minute fig conserve.
