Spain, Spain …

It is associated for me with a permanent fiesta, the joy and food. That only is the story of how I came to the shooting in a restaurant to Jordi Cruz. And in Spanish cuisine there are so many different thing, which really need you attention. The Spanish people are experts in the main dishes,beverages and, of course, in desserts. Always bright, always yelling, always so loud in a good way.

There’s all like a whirlwind, spontaneous, beautiful and with pleasure. And good music.

Today, we are going to try a dessert. Spanish dessert from the Michelin Chef – Jordi Cruz.

So, attention.

Spanish Dessert

In dessert there are a few parts:

Lemon Glaze
Violet Ice Cream
Sherbet
Crispy Cookies
Yogurt Cake
Flowers

It’s not simple, but when you know about all parts, it’s quite understandable. After all, the hardest part is just as simple. It remains to decide to do this desperate step – to begin the cooking process.

Here on a plate are collected a few dishes at the same time, cake and biscuits, sherbet, ice cream … I am confident that individually they are quite distinct and delicious desserts. And when all together … Yes, I warn you once, you have to spend a lot of time, and be responsible thought the process, but believe me, it is definitely worth it.
