Petit-Fours

The word for this week is FOUR

With the big Hallmark holiday (yes, you know which one I mean) coming up, I just had to do a post on one of my favourite topics... sweets! How about these petit-fours for your sweet tooth?

All the petit-fours featured have asian ingredients in them, in honor of the Lunar New Year.

Kuidaore has some treats here:
Jasmine Tea Macaroons
filled with a white chocolate (Valrhona Ivoire) ganache delicately perfumed with jasmine tea.

Mandarin Orange Friand
: ground almonds and a puree of gently poached mandarins.
The photostyling is just as lovely as the desserts!

Tomorrow is the first day of the Chinese New Year. We celebrate this season for 15 days. Since I have a dinner party to attend this Saturday, I thought I might try making these Asian-style petit fours by Pichet Ong: sesame balls with drunken fig.

Happy New Year all!
