Fruit Flans!

Can food be beautiful?
Yes, it can!
Last night’s class is a prime example of food, and even more so, dessert, being truly beautiful.

Fruit flans are a pastry crust shell, that has its inside coated with melted chocolate. My chocolate was flavoured with an orange oil. Then a pastry cream was poured into the shell until it reached the top edge. Next the top of the dessert was decorated with colourful fresh fruit. I used strawberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple, kiwi, and peaches. But other fruits like raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries are yummy alternatives. Then all of the fruits and the top of the outer edge of the crust were glazed with an apricot glaze to preserve the fruit. And lastly, along that outer top edge of the crust, almond slivers were sprinkled.
