Cinnamon rolls

20160917_181012-480x640

I was made of flour

Mixed with eggs

And  a splash of  milk

A pinch of salt and a drop of oil

Together they became a ball of dough

I was raised for hours

They rolled me very neatly

Into  a thin sheet and sprinkled over

some sugar with a mix of cinnamon

Then carefully rolled together

Into a long roll and cut into six

Placed in a tray

And dumped in the oven

At 180 degrees Celcius for 15 minutes

Together I was baked

Warm and hot was my body

As I lay to cool

Over they drizzle a thick white glaze

That adorned my body

Which was soft and sweet

Together they devoured admiringly

They call me a cinnamon roll

Together

Baklava

It’s a roll of filo

Or you may layer them over

Very fragile Yet crispy and strong

Sandwiched with nuts

And drizzle with a syrup

Made of sugar or even honey

The filo is very fragile

And needs to be handle

With extreme care

and cuddle in a towel

Just make sure they dont tear

Or dry out quick and not over cooked

It is a greek

But mostly loved by the middleeastern

They can be rolled as a cylinder

or made into triangles

Just make sure you butter each layer

So that they are not undercooked

Baklava is a really a devine sweet

The entire world will love its fragile pastry

Stuffed with nuts and Sweetened with syrup20160912_165001-640x480

Fragile

Blue Cheese

I walked along the Ayle

Look for a new cheese

Just tor try and find

How different are they all

Burrata was soft

While mozarella isa staple

I’ve tried gorgonzola

It was very pungent

I got a blue cheese tub

Which had blue lid

But the cheese was not blue

As i expected it to be

It looked like a gorgonzola

But a bit too softer

I slogged to find a recipe

I even wondered if i should have it in a bread

Or stuff it in tomatoes

And serve it with a bruschetta

It was a very tough effort to try a new cheese

That was not a staple In my pantry

Being a food writer Is not that easy

I’ve slogged a great deal, to come so far

Blue cheese was finally topped on my pizza

Which now tastes better than any other

Trying new things needs a lot of slog20160915_204045_crop_756x865
