A feast for eyes. This is probably the reason why so many people good food photography and to shot food (myself included). And people love flowers on their plate. Be it edible flowers like daisies or pansies for example or roses which are made of fruits. Some weeks ago I saw in that online foodie world roses which are made of avocados for the first time. And as a real passionate foodie I need to try to make one. Well, it turned out that making an avocado rose is much more challenging than I have expected and ended in a mashed avocado (Have you ever cut ripe avodaos? It is like cutting butter). That is why I decided to practice with other fruits which are much firmer than ripe avocados, and how these mango rose tartlets are originated 🙂
The first time I heard about that salt and sweet combo in desserts or sweets was in the 90’s sitcom “Friends” when Ross offers Phoebe a salt water taffy. Her reaction was “What the mother of crab is up with this stuff??? Oh god, is it a gum, food? What is the deal??? Oh, that’s nice… May I try the pink one?” And I was just thinking “Salt water what??? Taffy? Salty candies??? Ehhh!”. But on the other side, I was fascinated and it made me that curious that this scene stuck in my head over years. I mean I am talking about a sitcom from the 90’s and I still remember that scene! But unfortunately I never had the possibilty to try of that salt water taffy here in Germany.
