Sweets experiment

Above you see the result of my latest food experiment. Almonds covered with white chocolate (mixed with a bit of grated lemon zest) and rolled in licorice root powder. They were very nice. I made them for one of the Christmas days, so it is already quite some time ago. Hmm, time to think up new food experiments as it makes cooking more fun, I think.

More experiments starting at Francesca’s FuoriBorgo.

is not only on Fridays in our house. The Dorada (gilt-head bream) is our favorite, and baked in salt is the best.

Yesterday I had a very quiet day … most of it in bed trying to get rid of a really irritating cold my husband had managed to pass on to me. So I spent time surfing with my new tablet and listening to some really inspiring TED talks too.

Below is one of the ones I listened to: the NY chef Dan Barber on How I fell in love with a fish. He is talking about the Dorada. And not just any Dorada. Have a watch/listen. It’s really good.

Have a great weekend.
