It’s all about weird food combinations today.
The thing is, though, I don’t think any of the food combinations I like are weird.
Avocado and Vegemite on toast could be seen as strange, but wait until you try it. Banana soup is another one that might sound odd but the sweet creamy banana goes perfectly with the fiery chilli contained in this dish.
There is, however, one thing that I know makes people wrinkle their nose in puzzlement. Floral eats!
Rose, lavender, geranium and violet, such lovely flavours, but not many people seem to like them. I am told they are too perfumey, too old fashioned and just weird.
So here is a little round up of my favourite florals, most of which also contain chocolate….
I’m not talking about Fry’s Turkish Delight, but rather the proper Turkish sweets. Lovely, rose flavoured sweet squares of yum. The nut and seed filled sweets are also rather scrumptious.
Yes, I am the person who eats chocolate cremes, the ones that are usually left to the end of selection boxes. Rose cremes, violet cremes, geranium and lavender. I’m also partial to citrus cremes, peppermint cremes and coffee cremes.
Luckily, there is a ready supply for floral chocolate cremes from Beech’s Fine Chocolates. You can buy them direct from Beechs or through Animal Aid if you would like to support them.
Liquid violets. A must for an Aviator or just add to a glass of prosecco or champagne!
Do you like floral flavours? Or do they taste like you’ve swallowed the perfume departments?
