Recreated from 'Kings of the Wyld' by Nicholas Eames
Poor Gabe looked as though he’d been stabbed. Clay half-expected that disbelief to boil over into anger, but Gabriel just shook his head and returned his attention to the untouched plate before him. Kallorek called for a servant to take Valery to her room. The three of them ate dessert (a chocolate pie topped with chopped almonds and whipped cream) and sipped sweet red beer in mildly uncomfortable silence.
For a moment, let’s pretend I have an enchanted hat that will give me food on demand (a delightful fantasy). As appealing as the many dishes of Nicholas Eames’ ‘Kings of the Wyld’ sound – rabbit and mushroom stew, breakfast banquets at the table of a king, thick slabs of salted pork belly, crispy-skinned chicken, a staggering variety of jams – this chocolate pie would have to be my first choice out of the hat, even accompanied by the most uncomfortable of silences. I put a strawberry ‘Rose’ at the centre of mine just to make sure I didn’t lose sight of what’s important beyond my favourite brother-in-arms, chocolate.
Ingredients (serves 5 very hungry bandmates or 8 regular people)
For the pastry:
For the chocolate filling:
If having to chew your chocolate just seems like too much effort, try my chocolatl from Philip Pullman's 'The Book of Dust'.

Chocolate pie is the cake which is made up of chocolate and the little topping of any other material. The making of the cake is good for food lover because they made this and eat themselves and get the appreciation from the people or guests.

Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this website needs much more consideration. I'll probably be again to read much more, thanks for that info.

That post makes me hungry. I miss one of my aunts because she loves baking and she is a fan of baking pies. I do not like nuts, but I guess that this one tastes good. Strawberries were my favorite fruit and I love it when it is combined with milk. My grandfather always bring strawberries for me when he was still alive. I will definitely share this recipe to my auntie in order for her to make me this one. Thank you so much for sharing this!

Why I don't interact with ANYONE on Facebook. Seriously. The egomania in the admins of groups is rampant. I don't have the energy for it. I'm surprised you weren't more upset. Peace to you. I'm grateful Steve and Amy were able to help your family find safety and harmony again.

I am so very glad to hear this! I hope that Amy also handled things with Kerry and deleted him from his admin duties! Then, he can make a fake profile and try to admin again!
