Once again, I am straddling the fence on being tardy, but not because this one wasn’t done in time, just I hadn’t edited photos and I thought I had one more day!!! Same song, same dance, different day.
Since it was the photos that slowed me down, I am going to make this a pictorial post. Of course, I will give you an idea of what I think about this month’s challenge…….. Fantastic!!!! In this house we are not much for fruit desserts, unless it is an apple or cherry pie, so I was skeptical.
The 2010 March Daring Baker’s challenge was hosted by Jennifer of Chocolate Shavings. She chose Orange Tian as the challenge for this month, a dessert based on a recipe from Alain Ducasse’s Cooking School in Paris.
Jennifer chose a fantastic recipe with which to challenge us. We were to make everything by the book with the only exception being, we were able to play with the citrus we chose. I opted for Ruby Red grapefruit and I kicked the caramel up a bit with the addition of Rosemary. The recipe can be found here, as well as on Jennifer’s site.
Now for the pretty but late pictures!!!!!
I began with the marmalade…
Next came the Pate Sablee, which I only have pictures of fresh out of the oven…someone didn’t make sure there was a charge in his camera battery…. No Names, PLEASE!!
