Wednesday 9th May 2007Citrus Coconut Topped Custards with Passionfruit Tuiles
In the immortal words of George Harrison, there aren't many things in our lives more beautiful, more powerful, larger, yellower or more important than the sun! George endured an ongoing battle with cancer throughout the late 1990s. Sadly he lost his battle on the 29th of November 2001.
As many of you know, one of my favourite food bloggers and a very dear dear friend is the inspirational host of "A Taste of Yellow", a one off event to help raise awareness and support those who live with or have previously been affected by cancer.
Barbara from WinosandFoodies knows cancer all too well, she lost her best friend and her father to it in 2003 and more recently in 2005 she was diagnosed herself, she continues to battle and be treated for the disease, ever hopeful of one day being cancer free.
Barbara asked us to blog and share yellow themed food to coincide with the upcoming
"LIVESTRONG Day is the Lance Armstrong Foundation's (LAF) grassroots advocacy initiative to unify people affected by cancer and to raise awareness about cancer survivorship issues on a national level and in local communities across The United States of America. LIVESTRONG Day 2007 will occur on Wednesday, May 16."
Whilst visiting the greengrocer, thinking of Barbara's event and all things yellow, these beautiful yellow chillies leapt out at me and I simply couldn't resist buying them even though I had no plans for them!
Likewise this golden yellow kiwifruit, it was like I was wearing yellow tinted spectacles and everything was coming up and blooming golden yellow hues!
I had no plans for either of these, as I already knew what I was going to make, I knew right from the moment Barbara announced "A Taste of Yellow" that I was going to make one of my all time favourite desserts.
Citrus Coconut Topped Custards are the ideal and gorgeous combination of lemon and orange. Rich and delicious, I often serve them at my dinner parties as they're always a big hit! Here I have simply served them with a couple of Passionfruit Tuiles.
Here comes the sun,
Here comes the sun, and I say
it's all right,
it's all right...
