The verdict … all you could hear was the sound of spoons scraping glass in the backdrop of pin drop silence. “There had to me more!! Scrape, scrape!!” After there was no more, the boy came to the kitchen to leave his glass for a wash. He declared, ” Today was a nice day Mama. Finally learnt how to somersault, and had really nice dessert. It was very very nice!” It was indeed. I reduced the sugar in the Bavarian cream recipe keeping in mind how sweet macaron shells can be. The strawberries and Bavarian complimented the pink peppercorn and Aztec chili chocolate very well! Thank you Anushruti for the pink peppercorn, and Val for sending me an assortment of pretty glass bottles filled with spice blends. They are from an artisanal food company, ‘Made With Love, and are gorgeous.
