n.n remember all those tweets I had about me dreaming of Rhubarb? Well... I am delightfully glad to tell you that that little thing shall only increase more now that I have FOUND Rhubarb!
It finally happened.
My mom decided to take me and my sister and my boyfriend to CityMarket, the only gourmet market found in Mexico City. I expected to find lamb but instead... just as I walked into the veggies and fruits section
The clouds opened up and the Gods decided to smile down upon me and said:
"Andrea here is your Rhubarb"
...cue for Angelic music...
There standing in a huge pile of ice along side with asparagus and other things I didn't mind was my Rhubarb.
At long long last.
So Mexican readers around the country!
I give you:
You would think that being a country that has the soil and weather abilities to produce almost anything Rhubarb would be a pretty common ingredient around here. But no. Hardly anyone has heard of Rhubarb.
Slightly overpriced for such a small size plant.
But so totally worth it!
I know I said that my grandma is the best cook I'll ever meet but that Jamie Oliver guy isn't that far behind...
His recipes never cease to satisfy myself and my family.
I followed his Rhubarb Food recipe and OMG! Instant and absolute success!
Rhubarb fool is what heaven tastes like!
Look at that!
Standing on a triangle shaped Pastry cookie alongside with Orange-yogurt-sweetened with honey. Rhubarb compost. Beautiful!
Since I started working on the recipe slightly late by the time I was done with it, the sun had already set, so with no natural light to brighten my photos I stole my sister's reading lamp in order to create a small photo-studio:
I simply know I have cooked my future kids favorite dessert.
