Care to hazard a guess?
We had a small dinner for family and friends last night, and this was one of the desserts served. Early morning Sunday, I was playing with a macro lens trying to take some extreme (at least for me) close-up photos on a manual setting (yup, auto turned off, a major major thing) and I am thrilled with some of the handheld (too lazy to set-up tripod as I wanted to eat the subject) results. And for those of you asking, during my recent trip to Hong Kong, I got a Canon G12 for me to take “everyday, everywhere photos” and I also got a Canon EOS600D with an extra macro lens for close-up photos. Please, don’t ask me more than that, I can barely figure out how to use my cell phone for goodness sakes… :)
But this dessert was wonderful. Totally based on a western recipe and methods, but using some of our finest home grown ingredients. The results? A version of it would probably make it into that mythical Marketman cookbook if I ever got around to writing it. I’ve had two slices with a large cup of tea before 9 a.m. on a lazy Sunday morning…
I hate to be a tease, but you’ll have to wait until I post the recipe soon. In the meantime, you can always hazard a guess… :)
