In the couple of years that I have been blogging this is the first time I'm participating in an online competition. I figured, start with a relatively simple one before delving into more complex gastronomy challenges.
Polvoron, I thought, was the perfect dish to create edible art. It seemed malleable enough to be moulded into letters to put together a catchy phrase or a witty quote.
How wrong was I?!?!?!?!?! My confidence was shot down from the letter "A"...
The photos, with the words "Eat Me", were the result of my feeble attempts to be artistic with my food. Rather than a congenial invitation, "Eat Me" seemed more like a threat to the diner!
Luckily, my Filipino "cookies 'n cream shortbread" was most definitely edible albeit barely readable! The straightforward recipe, a variation to my wife's basic polvoron, is also in stark contrast with the difficulty of using it to write!
