Advent calendar 15 - Deconstruction...
For pudding the humble and much maligned trifle is transformed into a fresh fruit sorbet, gelatin gin custard, and a spun sugar topped with a gingered brandy-snap.
All very clever.
So I thought that I might have a go.
The thing is I'm a glass painter and not a chef (well not a chef in the strictest sense even though I'm a very creative cook), so I though balls. Christmas tree balls, and deconstructed a snowman instead.
My snowman is served in a clear glass bauble with hat, carrot nose, stick arms, coal eyes and buttons all hand crafted by myself. The remaining snow is beads of polystyrene; it even has a knitted woolen scarf.
Deconstructed or melting? Who knows. Either way I really like it and I think that next year it'll be one of my personalised bauble products.
