Sorbets anyone?


I don’t know when Fall is planning to arrive here. They say it’s tomorrow, so I’ll wait and see.


Lemon & honey trio

But the truth is that in the calendar it has already arrived a while ago. So it was time to go back to the artisanal ice cream factory where I do seasonal works to create ice-creams, sorbets and desserts for their website.


Sauteed pineapple cubes with pineapple & vanilla bean sorbet

If you know me you probably have guessed by now that this is the kind of work I do with great sacrifice. Ahahahah, yeah right!...



All the pictures in this post are from Pedro, a photographer that comes to take pictures of my desserts for the website. He says those are the only photo shoots that end up with him eating the models…

Of course I can not give you the recipes for the sorbets, but I'll leave you the recipe of these nice lemon & honey cookies that are a part of the lemon & honey trio: tea, sorbet and cookies!



LEMON & HONEY COOKIES

• 90 gr (3.2 oz) butter
• 40 gr (1.4 oz) powder sugar
• 2 egg yolks
• 60 gr (2.1 oz) honey
• 180 gr (6.4 oz) flour
• 2 lemons (zest)
• sugar (for sprinkling)

Beat the butter (must be soft) with the powder sugar. Add the yolks, lemon zest and honey and mix well. Lastly add the flour and mix just until the dough is uniform. Wrap in film and take to the fridge for at least 1 hour. Roll the dough, cut into shapes, pierce with a fork, sprinkle with the sugar and bake at 170ºC (325ºF) until golden.

If you live in the Lisbon area and want to try these and other sorbets and ice-creams you can go here! Hope you enjoy them!

I must say, you live in a horrible world full of ice cream and wonders, you poor thing.
As for the dishes and such, don't forget I only do one table (school theme this year, posted 10-15), the rest are my favorites from the other 44 tables.

Para tu orgullo tengo que decir que a pesar de ser lo más friolero del mundo mundial y estar pelada de frío ahora mismo, me han entrado unas ganas locas de probar estos heladitos. Tienen una pinta fantástica. Y del puding de arroz mejor no hablo, que si no seguro que acabas escuchando mis rugidos de estómago hasta en Portugal.

Too funny about the photog eating the models!

Beautiful sorbets. Orange and cinnamon is a very interesting flavor combo.
