The triple cream is encased in a velvety white mould $15.95 ea Smelly Cheese Shop.Fresh cream Pavlova Rolls at Providore come in three flavours. Berry and choc chip, apricot and almond and wattleseed and macadamia $28 ea.


Pashmak Persian Fairy Floss comes in 5 flavours costs $8 per pack and is served on its own or as an accompaniment to fruits, cakes, ice creams, puddings and desserts The word Pashmak means "little wool" in Persian, as the confectionery resembles sheep's wool. The pistachio is my favourite. Jaggers Stall 38
