Earthly Delights: BLOOMING. The April Issue

Posted By Gudy Herder / April 30, 2014 / 14 Comments

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.

    Que bonito reto!
    Me chifla la frescura y luz de Confiture de Vivre. Esas tartaletas parecen salidas de un cuento. Que bonita composición.
    Y por tu parte, cuanto arte. Delicioso montaje, lujoso, colores y combinaciones muy atractivas. Me cautiva la última foto. La potencia de ese verde y rosa me chifla.

    Un abrazo!

    Gudy, this time I have to jump to your blog, too, to leave a comment. Such a magical interpretation in your take! Love it, the boldness of the fruit and the delicateness of the flowers. Looks like from a hundred years ago in some way. The two of you are such a wonderful duo!***
