White Chocolate Matcha Flowers
by Malgorzata Wolak Dault
Here is a pleasant little indulgence for afternoon hours with a cup of tea or coffee. These Matcha Flowers are very tasty and take no time to prepare. They end by looking green and festive, like tiny flower buds.
You simply need to melt a bar of a good quality white chocolate and mix with 1 tbsp. of matcha powder, 1 tsp.ground ginger and 4 tbsp of coconut flakes.
Using a teaspoon, form small rounds of the mixture on parchment paper. Then half 6 to 7 macadamia nuts and position one on top of each of the macha rounds. Transfer to the fridge and chill until firm.
The Raw and the Cooked, MYTHOLOGIQUES is a new column on the culture of eating and cooking, with contributions by various authors. The column name is borrowed from the title of a book by Claude Levi-Strauss. It is spontaneous, a little amusing but serious at the same time.
