Love is to share, mine is for you – Moelleux au chocolat blanc et au miel, abricots fondants et glace à la pistache

[White chocolate and honey sponge with poached apricots and pistachio ice-cream] In my world, nothing matches the happiness of being in love. As a matter of fact, I love being in love.
