I love reading blogs, but once in a while, I find one that is jaw-dropping. I just have to share it with you. This blog, by Ivan Day, has to be one of the top blogs ever written. Encyclopedic in his knowledge of the history of food etc., he makes the most incredible food I have ever seen. I have accused him of being a supernatural being, but he cops to being a mere mortal like the rest of us. Nevertheless, I'm certain he must work at Buckingham Palace for the Queen. I love this blog and hope you will too. This is a jelly using one of Ivan's macedoine molds.
Another macedoine jelly. Does food come any more beautiful than this?
And this pineapple flummery was made by Ivan in a 1790's Wedgewood mold. Have a look at Ivan's blog, Food History Jottings. It is incredible and I am so glad to have found it (and thank you Ivan for letting me show some of your pics and post about your blog).
