Already February and Valentine Day is coming. It seems I have not seen January, it went so fast. Before Christmas Kraft Canada contacted about doing a photo shoot in my home, while I was baking. I was so excited about this project since I have never done a photo shoot before. We were scheduled to do it on December 21st but Ottawa was hit by a big snow storm. After contacting the photographer we decided to do it in January. The photo shoot took place in my home. For the occasion I choose to make a recipe that I have never done before, Rocky Ridge Bark. It was my first time making a bark and not the last. It is so quick to make and delicious. I like that you can use any chocolate and you can substitute all the ingredients for others that you prefer. The bark will keep a long time in a cool place.
This would be nice to offer to someone special on Valentine Day using white chocolate, cranberries, pecans or pistachios.
Let me talk about the photographer: Ashley Notley is so nice and fun to work with. She is professional and made me feel at ease very quickly. We talked, laughed while she was taking pictures. She does an amazing job. Please take a moment to visit her website: Ashley Notley Photography and her blog where she features the pictures she took that day in my kitchen: La Cuisine d'Hélène - Getting 'Kraf'-y!
