Guests at the Kent Life and Kent on Sunday Food and Drink awards will be wowed with Tom's ginger parkin dessert served with apple five ways. While the moist cake deliciously compliments the apple flavours, it is also the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea. If you can resist temptation, it tastes even better a few days after baking
