One thing I love to do while traveling is to find interesting foods and culture that is unique to the area. Today, I am introducing VooDoo Doughnuts from Portland, Oregon. Portland, Oregon is known for its weirdness and it is proud to be weird. I love that about the city. Everywhere you go, there are interesting finds waiting to be discovered. For example, I saw a food truck named, “Steaks Fifth Avenue.” :)
I’m holding their most famous and most distinguishable of their doughnuts which is their most famous, VooDoo Doll Doughnut. Each doughnut are uniquely decorated. I got the one with a stake in his heart. While you are in line, check out their interior, the stained glass and other odd trinkets and decor. There are a variety of choices, but the VooDoo Doll Doughnut cannot be missed!
Macarons are one of my favorite desserts, but after making them myself, I decided it’s better to share when I have a big batch on my hand (it’s sugar heavy). This was an overnight delivery from my friend in LA who purchased it from Lette in Beverly Hills. Instead of plating the macarons as is, you can make it fancier by plating them on a two-tier plate.
like so. Make sure your hands are clean and dry and have a steady hand to hold the macarons in place while you add more. The circle is tricky to accomplish and it takes a little bit of skill, but in no time, voila! Doesn’t it just look absolutely gorgeous now?
Place the tower next to indirect sunlight to enhance its presentation. This was for an afternoon tea event that I never had the chance to post. Here it is :) Maybe this can be your centerpiece when you decide to host a party of your own.
Best way to wake up to a nice day sipping from a cup with beautifully crafted foam art.
Lucia cake and pistachio macaron up close. Lucia is named after the P46 matriarchal Grandmother. With a traditional chocolate mousse, vanilla crème brulee, chocolate cake, and praline crisp, it is the perfect balance of bitter sweetness paired with a cup of hot cocoa.
