While at Elys Cafe my mum was thinking just how long it had been since she had had an almond twist. These delicious sticks of flaky pastry are filled with pistachio paste, sliced almonds, and are something we are both partial too. I suggested we share one, but in the end we were indulgent and had a whole one each.

Elys sell their almond twists for £3.25, and they are presented at the counter in a wicker basket, freshly baked, and protected by a white cloth. Their pristine form, did not last long, however, as we quickly started slicing, dicing, and demolishing.

I would say that our almond twists were sprinkled with icing sugar, but that would be inaccurate. They were more snowed under. The generous helping made it feel like eating a spring cloud full of nutty dew drops.

The best part of an almond twist is of course dapping up all the flaky bits with your finger. Not something you'd do in the presence of the Queen, but we weren't, so we did.

Do you think the queen has ever dabbed her plate?
