“If while you are enjoying your food, the person next to you is not enjoying as well, then the pleasure of eating is diminished.” Andrea Camilleri
The heat will come back soon and this time it will not find me unprepared. In my fridge there will be liters of ice water flavored with mint and lots and lots of fruits and vegetables. The big trend for spring / summer 2014 is mango! Rich in fiber, vitamins and antioxidants, it has the power to make shine even the people with less solar vitality, thanks to its deep yellow color. Today’s recipe is ideal as an exotic starter, to hit the taste buds of your guests. With a mango, you will be able to create four small portions. Do you know how to peel it? By clicking here, you will find my explanation. For another appetizer by Franklin & Marshall, I suggest you try this potato soufflé with brie cheese; if you prefer fresh flavors, you will be spoiled for choice between my now famous Caprese salad or the tartar of vegetable, apples and salmon. Experience everything, dear fashion tasters, because “life is a surprise.”
