Earthly Delights: BLOOMING. The April Issue

A brief intro for you who stumble upon this series for the first time: Sandy from Confiture de Vivre and myself started publishing Earthly Delights beginning last summer playing around with what we are best at. We decide on one common theme styling and cooking our interpretations without knowing from each other the final result. This month we wanted to feature ‘Blooming’.

Sandy: I loved Gudy’s idea about doing a ‘blooming’ theme. How about making grow some fine small tartlets at blooming branches? No sooner said than done. See my version with blooming berry tartlets on a basil crust with edible flowers.

Gudy: I always felt fruit and vegetables look as if they are in bloom too. Shape and colour look so familiar to some flowers. So, when blooming came  up as this month topic, I immediately thought of a fruit-veggie-flower theme.

You can see former issues of our monthly column here.

How about some extra inspiration?
