Week 50 | February 15, 2011
Happy Valentine’s Day. What does that even mean? The best excuse to play with chocolate.
I love custards and puddings – tapioca or rice pudding, eclairs with custard filling, I recently mentioned to a friend that pot de cremes might be one of my favorite sweets. I grew up eating a lighter variation of a steamed gingery custard my mom would make during the cold season. However I tend to like custards that are lightly flavored, fragrant or fruity.
Week 3 | 3.4.2010
The lemon zest has been candied and this week’s treats are in the works. I noticed these organic lemons from (Twin Girls Farm) at the market for only slightly more than regular ones. Zest, candy, lemons…organic is a good way to go this time around. Lemon zest on the left, cocktail grapefruit on the right.
Week 2 | 2.25.2010
I came across something nice, dark chocolate and orange, and decided I wanted some in one of my favorite dessert forms – a tart. My original idea was to fill a sweet pastry crust with chocolate ganache that was flavored with zest and some orange syrup from candying orange peel earlier on.
