Those of you who have read this blog before will know I have a bit of an addiction to Pinterest. I’ve been collecting some fantastic recipes which are also beautifully styled and photographed. These shots below are just simply stunning. I’ll probably never make them but I love looking at them. To narrow them down I’ve chosen recipes that are perfect for Spring and Summer (sorry for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere) Click on the image to be taken to the source website and in most cases the recipe.
I’ve never made my own ice cream but I’d love to give this a go this Summer. It looks divine. (unfortunately I don’t have the recipe!)
I love the colour of this triple berry curd made from Blueberries, Raspberries, and Marionberries (a type of blackberry apparently) Frozen berries can be used if you don’t have fresh.
One of my all time favourite dishes – Vietnamese spring rolls or sometimes called rice paper rolls. I have tried to make them once but quickly discovered that these are best left to the experts on Kingsland Road (or Richmond Road in Melbourne) As you can see these are not rolled terribly well but I just love the photo.
I love a good toasted sandwich (or even a cheap plastic cheese and watery ham version from a greasy spoon). This one looks incredibly tasty – made with melted mozzarella cheese and pesto. Yum!
Baked chocolate custard – need I say more? Unfortunately the recipe isn’t in English
I love grilled apricots on the BBQ with cream. This Donna Hay Eton mess looks great served in jars.
Lemon creme brûlée tartlets – lemon curd, creme brûlée and shortbread
Lots of tasty ricotta crostini. The variations are endless
I could keep going but I think I have to stop. I’ve just had dinner but now I’m hungry again. I hope you’ve enjoyed the feast
