    Dear Revered Chef,

    it is definitely high time to cut out some culinary dead wood – Your recipe most elegantly is up to the point!

    I had some problems obtaining fir twigs in Boise, Idaho, and had to revert to the common pine tree’s needles. I hope this does not have a major impact on the culinary harmony of Your recipe.

    However, I have to humbly admit that the Black Forest Cake Revisted tasted a bit like bubble bath – I suspect the pine needles are to blame!
