Almost wordless – Mandarine soup in a crisp dark chocolate tube

A mandarine soup that tastes better than bitting into the real fruit. The crunch of dark chocolate.

I always seem to think I don’t like citrus and chocolate. But I do.

And this experiment would taste delicious with a quenelle of ricotta mousse and a couple of almost-candied kumquats. Perhaps a few cubes of olive oil sponge. And a sprinkle of roasted pinenuts, possibly caramelised.

    the bottom photo looks like an angry fried egg… to me :D a beautiful, angry, fried sunny-side up egg. sounds amazing! I wish I still had the time and money for experiments like these, but alas, being an art student doens’t leave you with much…

    Incroyable, j’ai écrit ce même mot “quenelle de mousse de ricotta” dans une recette hier ! Les photos au Pentax : bioutifoul.

    Love your new blog, Fanny, especially the illustrations! I still remember your very first posts – it’s amazing, how your style has evolved. And your pastry, too :)

    citrus and chocolate is my favorite combination, even above peanut butter and chocolate. I think it reminds me of my childhood, so it serves as comfort food. And I agree with Esther above…the bottom photo DOES sort of look like an angry fried egg (in a good way). Beautiful photographs once again.
