Mango Agar Agar Flowers



Mango pudding is a staple at home, and the kids like to take it to school for lunch. For the lunch boxes I usually cut it into squares, but just for fun this time I used some little flower cutters. Agar agar is easier to shape and cut than jelly, and it is healthier too. The basic recipe for mango agar agar pudding is here.


Hazelnut Gold Chocolates




Toast some hazelnuts and remove the skins, then drop into some melted dairy free chocolate, the darker the better. Collect 3 hazelnuts at the time and let them set together (I also spoon just a little more chocolate on top to make it more like a proper chocolate). I had a very little edible gold paper left from an old job, so I sprinkled some on the chocolates. It didn't give it any particular flavour, I must say (maybe I had too little?), but it looked pretty and sophisticated :-). Unfortunately is was dark by then and the photo is not too clear, the flash also made the chocolate look less dark that it actually was. Still, everything got eaten pretty happily!

  3. Ecco, io, golosa come sono, mi lancerei subito sui cioccolatini invece che sul più dietetico e salutare mango. Quando vedo cioccolata non ci capisco più niente!
    Per rispondere alla tua domanda... in Italia fa ancora caldo ma siamo nella norma, non più i 42 gradi della settimana scorsa.
    A proposito dello Spitzkohl, ho scoperto che esiste anche in New Zealand con il nome di Cabbage 'Early Jersey Wakefield'.
    Ecco dove puoi trovare i semi online:

    ma magari scopri che te li può reperire anche il tuo negozio di fiducia!
    Un forte abbraccio e a presto, Ale!

  4. Anch'io amo la cioccolata, pero' preferisco il mango, che e' il mio frutto preferito :-).

    Grazie anche per l'indicazione, vedro' se trovo i semi, per ora ho comprato dei semi italiani, ma e' ancora troppo freddo per piantarli. Sono qui che aspetto!!!!

    Ciao
