Why Do I Think Of These Labor Intensive Tasks?
Last year I held a Bastille Day celebration and thought the only way to serve raspberries was to stuff them with melted chocolate. It was a decadent end to the evening and a perfect marriage but gee wiz what a gooey nightmare!
This year as an additional appetizer to the salmon mousse below I dreamed up these tasty morsels. Who in their right mind is going to hollow out cherry tomatoes (these babies were miniature plums from our garden) pat them dry, minuscule mince chives and uber chiffonade basil alternating on top and below with red dragon mustard cheese and mozzeralla pearls?
All I could think about was that it was only for 4 and I wasn't doing the deed on 1/2 sheet pans for the masses.
They were cute,and tasty and yes I will do them again.
