Food enthusiasts and bloggers from Vancouver’s food bloggers meetup, gathered at Fairmont Pacific Rim, Giovanne Café to sample some of their delicious delights. Before I launch into my review, I recommend anyone partaking in a few events if you consider yourself a food enthusiast. Trying out food and meeting new friends…it’s the perfect marriage!
Now the sweets….
Signature Sugar Bun with Vanilla Cream filling. This was not heavy or overly sweet. The texture was creamy and light but, the flavor was just not there. Yes, it is a simple pastry but, as a signature item, I found that it lacked oomph. 2.5/5
Yule log was my favorite. Nice light hazelnut mouse with chocolate and wafers to add a crunchy texture.
Overload on chocolate, check.
Intense explosion to the senses, check. 4/5
Lastly we sampled the black forest cake, a nice take on a traditional pastry. Still trying to decipher what was in the cream, I believe it was Kirsch. Lighter than the black forest cakes I previous had but, if they kicked it up a notch and infused a stronger cherry flavor it would have been perfect. 3/5
