A plum present

    Newer Older

    Plum sorbet, poached plums and chocolate cigars. More poached plums in red wine, this time with some aromatics - star anise and cloves, two of my favourite spices. The chocolate cigars were made with walnuts, hazelnuts, filo pastry and dark chocolate. Recipe here.

      Just can't wait to try your recipe!
      I'm a chocoholic but I've never tried chocolate cigars before. (Pl'se forgive my ignorance....hehehe!)

      liyen: The cigars worked a treat and were quite easy to make. I'll be using more of these again.

      akoo_tr: Thank you!

      Dancing star: Plums are fantastic but seem to play second fiddle to peaches and nectarines. Glad you liked this shot. The light was just fantastic.

      Sal: Have just posted the recipe to this on my blog. The cigars were new to me too!

      Nice Shot! Normally the bright spot would be something that I wouldn't like, but here it works really well.

      You'll notice that a bit in my shots because I use backlight a lot. Call it my style! :)
