Today the sisters discuss baking with molds. Taunya introduces St Agatha the patron saint of bakers and tells her tragic story and the pastry that is made in her name in Italy; the Minne di St Agata.

Taunya re-uses the mold to make easy chocolate bowls that are perfect for mousse, fruit, or ice cream.

Melody prepares a tasty goat cheese, honey and pistachio spread for crostini.
