Vanilla and Raspberry Marshmallows

Sometimes inspiration moves in mysterious ways and at other times it’s painfully obvious. In this case I went to the food festival EAT 2010 in Øksnehallen, where I caught Thomas Parry (the head pastry chef at Hotel d’Angleterre)  demonstrating some of his mad cooking skills. Among the many delicious things he guided his sugar-hungry audience through were some raspberry flavoured marshmallows. So I went home and pulled out ye olde Foodbeam recipe. The only changes needed were to remove one of the vanilla beans and to add a deciliter of mashed and deseeded raspberries after the gelatine. (But don’t forget to use pasteurised egg whites if you’re in Denmark). The result was a whole batch of fluffy and bouncy marshmallows with a delicate yet distinct raspberry and vanilla flavour. Nice! And the cocoa nibs on top added a nice dry chocolate twist to the classic. That and it made me feel even closer to Thomas. Do you think he would mind it if I called him Tom Tom?

Recipe Tryout: Chocolate Macaroons from Cannelle et Vanille

Whenever I’m travelling, this blog works as my cookbook. So imagine my surprise when I wanted to suggest a nice chocolate recipe for my niece’s baptism in Stockholm and I couldn’t find one single chocolate recipe here! And it’s not like I haven’t been yapping on about the endless pleasures of the cocoa persuasion, but somehow I’ve managed to avoid actually putting that into action. So sorry! Luckily I’ve found just the right recipe to make amends with on a very pretty sister blog called Cannelle et Vanille: French Chocolate Macaroons.
