Waiting for the entrée

Waiting for the entrée” by Emanuele Magini describes the moment when both adults and child play with whatever they find on the table, like bread and tools, in order to wait for the meal to be served. It consists in a soup plate that hosts a small labyrinth in the middle of the central surface that can be used to play with small breadcrumb balls or green peas. An empty time transformed in an entertaining and recreational time.

PORCELEIN AT TEA TIME

CARNIVAL

eat an old fashioned red candy apple!

8 medium sized apples
8 wooden sticks
3 cups white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1/4 teaspoon red food coloring (optional)

Wash and dry the apples. Remove any stems or leaves and insert a wooden stick into the end of each apple. Set apples aside. Heat and stir sugar, corn syrup and water in a saucepan until sugar has dissolved. Boil until the syrup reaches 300 degrees on a candy thermometer, or until a little syrup dropped into cold water separates into breakable threads.
Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon and food coloring, if using. Dip one apple completely in the syrup and swirl it around a little with the stick to coat. Hold the apple above the saucepan to drain off excess. Place apple, with the stick facing up, on a well greased pan. Repeat with remaining apples. If syrup thickens or cools too much, simply reheat briefly before proceeding. Let cool completely before serving.

PETIT DESIGN

from the book Je sais cuisiner pour mes doudous. Editions de l’Epure by Martine Camillieri

A cooking book to play with blankies,  parents, friends, the birds in the garden, the neighbor’s kitty or the dog you are dreaming of… An original cookbook so that grown-ups can make poetic recipes as if they were kids.

Four chapters, four seasons: you reach one month after the other to cook in accordance with Nature. Sometimes it is about tiny food to share with your blanky, sometimes it is much bigger, such as a meal for a whole family on a Sunday…
