We have been wanting to put together this project for a very log time : bringing together our passion for the cosmos and for food into recipes! A few months ago we met Charlotte of the e-shop Rose Caramelle with the idea of realizing a collaboration. Throughout the discussions, Charlotte offered to prepare an article where she would introduce our blog to her readers and at the same time we would use her products with our recipes. For those who do not know, Rose Caramelle is specialized in the sale of stationery and decorative objects for parties.
On our side, we reflected on a set of recipes for a cosmic cocktail party.
the colors fuchsia, black, gray and white have been privileged in our recipes to evoke the colors of a nebula. On the menu: beet hummus and parmesan shortbreads, stuffed white mushrooms, vegetable chips, and cuttlefish ink muffins. All this accompanied by a Cointreau and pomegranate juice cocktail.
