10 – Tarta de Maracuya con helado
And now a desert again? Hmmm, maybe I should reflect on the sentence “Usually I do not like deserts”. Anyway, I wouldn’t recommend something, that isn’t worth talking about, would I?
What you can see here is a piece of cake – passion fruit cake to be a stickler for details. Between the flan base and the creamy layer of passion fruit is vanilla ice cream. A strawberry garnishes the top of this masterpiece.
The taste was very fruity, refreshing and a little bit spicy because of the black passion fruit seeds. A real explosion of different flavors was this passion fruit mousse. A little bit sour, a little bit sweet, a little bit spicy – But for a sweet dessert exactly the right portion to satisfy after the main meal.
You can find the recipe here in the Spanish language. But I doubt that it will taste similar to the great one I had because it looks very different in the picture.
Well, I hope, that you enjoyed my article, that your mouth is watering and your stomach growls. Same for me now. Whenever you have the chance to visit a Peruvian restaurant in your country, try to remember this article and what I tried to recommend you. I know what I will miss when I leave this epicurean country with all its fanciful and wondrous Peruvian dishes. The joy of eating and that a whole country celebrates the creation of food as a national heritage.
