KCC February Challenge: Filipino Aphrodisiac Foods
This month’s KCC Cooking Challenge is: Filipino Aphrodisiac Food. The first thing that came to my mind is the Soup No#5 and Balut!!! I’m not sure if I’m ready to make that soup yet and I haven’t even tasted it in the first place. And for the balut, I’m scared of the little bird to tell you that truth. I only eat the balut penoy because I’m not fond of the bird!
The next thing that came to my mind are strawberries and chocolate. Sexy… 😛
So here’s my take: It is going to be a tweaked CREMA de FRUTA! So it will the Choco-Crema de Berry. Basically it is the same base cake, then the crema topped with chocolate ganache, layered with strawberries and blueberries and finished off with a clear gelatin.
