My second post for Sunday Supper has me excitedbecause I´m making a tart full of fruits that feels like summer. Some days Ireally don´t know what season it is.
Today I went shopping for fruits. And came back withmangoes, strawberries, passion fruit and blueberries. That´s a tropical winterfruit basket. I´ve never paid muchattention to seasonal produce as I´m doing now that I write this blog. I dideat seasonally, but it wasn´t planned. It just happened. I went to thesupermarket, saw this and that, bought some and ate it in the simplest way Icould find.
Now, I do the same but try to find stores that sell good stuff. Andthe simple ways are getting much more sophisticated. Spices, herbs and flavorcombinations I never imagined. And let´s not get into the roasting,caramelizing and braising. So, all in all, I´m eating great food with the sameamount of work but twice the fun. It´s great to have a food blog.
Don´t be put off by the use of gelatin. It´s just a bit and really holdsit together. The nutty, flaky dough filled with a sweet but faintly tart, pillowy mousse and then the berries that burst in every bite. Are you feeling the firecrackers yet?
So this Sunday,since we´re celebrating an Independence, and then there are two more comingthis month (Argentina july 9 and France july 14) I´ll start with the first of the three, because this is our 4th of July post after all, but I will also add the last, which can be celebrated with the same dessert since they have identical colors.My country´s will have to wait till I think of some interesting way ofusing light blue and white, our flag colors. Yeah, not really food friendly colors.Not at all. A bit of a challenge.
