Pears poached in spiced red wine? Yum! Chocolate caramel cake? Delicious! Putting the two together? Evil genius! 🙂 JJ from 84th & 3rd is the genius in this case with this visually spectacular Spiced Pear, Red Wine & Chocolate Cake.
After the rich decadence of a chocolate tart, how about a fresh and zingy sorbet? The combination of lemon and basil proposed by Sarah over at Thyme sounds delightfully refreshing. I won’t complain when summer rolls around and I can give it a try.
Also enjoying a northern hemisphere summer, Giulia over at Juls’ Kitchen has taken advantage of beautiful ripe nectarines to freshen up an Ada Boni recipe, creating this Ricotta and Peach Cake. And you know I won’t complain about a good hit of lemon zest!
My love of a good tartin is no secret, and here’s one with a difference. Inspired by Michel Roux Jnr, Drizzle & Dip‘s Sam has put together one that’s savoury and yet still sweet. Just like the apple version, the turned out Onion and Beetroot Tart Tatin looks amazing!
And finally, here’s a dish that’s just perfect for a gathering of friends. I found this savoury version of Kalács (which, I’ve found, is a brioche-like bread from Hungary) on At Down Under. The presentation is great and ideal for guests to tear off their own fresh hunk of pancetta and cheese stuffed bread.
