Had a request from a friend for her sis-in-law’s birthday and the only rule was, do anything, but no fruits, as her bro doesn’t really eat fruits. Bummer…..because I had some awesome PX Sherry macerated apricots in the fridge.
Rummaged through my kitchen cupboard, fretted over it for a week or two and decided to make something a bit different and experimental. How did I know if they tasted alright? An extremely sophisticated testing procedure was applied to ensure all ingredients matched on a fundamental level.
- Spoon of extra virgin olive oil
- Sprinkle some matcha on
- One vanilla pod
- A few whole pistachios
Instructions for Test:
- Shove oil + matcha into mouth
- Pop pistachios in and chew
- Sniff on vanilla pod
- If you do not puke, they will go well togather
Actually, some prior research was done to ensure that these ingredients all shared similar flavour components, therefore, increasing the likelihood that they would go well togather. Its kinda like trying to understand how peanut butter and jelly are a match made in obesity heaven. However, you’ll never know how they would taste overall in balance until its done.
