All the sweets I can't take home ('cause they've been eaten along the way....)
There are some artworks I love so deeply I could eat ‘em. The idea behind this Mondrian-like cake belongs to Caitlin Freeman, a plastic artist from San Francisco (someone who, I suppose, loves art and sweets as much as myself! ;). She owns a pâtisserie specialized in artworks which become cakes or desserts. Yummy. Found it here (link in Portuguese).
This amazing dessert was served at a banquete for the jurors of Cannes Film festival, by Electrolux. A very complete integrated communications initiative which can be seen here. (Imagem: Ian Gavan/ Wireimage)
Believe me: this is a dessert! mousse of basilico, served with fresh strawberries “under” a coverture of cocoa… | Delicioso mousse de manjericão, com morangos frescos escondidos sob a “terra” - uma mistura com gostinho de cacau, que deixa tudo com a quantidade exata de doce.
Pastéis de nata - further than the every-corner-pastry-shop-option and the world famous “Pastéis de Belem”, the most traditional “pastel de nata” in town, there’s a delicious new discover in Lisbon called NATA. In my humble opinion (pardon, traditional portuguese pastry!) NATA is better than Belém… Anyway, both deserve a taste to make sure you have enough arguments to agree or disagree with me. PS: don’t forget to sprinkle cinnamon on the top… <o>
