Haha! Witty title because we’re talking about food. Is the title in any other way relevant? No.
Let’s dig in!
I spent the weekend thinking about what kinds of food would work in my model for Atlas.
The first thing that came to mind was prata. Indian food is amazing. I thought about letting the crispy prata wedge into a skewer of tender tandoori chicken with a ball of spices that just break open to titillate your senses when the curry is poured over.
Then of course, I realised that I wanted to make something that didn’t require so much work considering the fact that I have Critical Writing class before 3D.
Desserts. Dry desserts tend to be easier to work with right? Maybe teatime snacks?
I thought about slicing a croissant in half to be used as the cone, with a disc of solidified chocolate. As for the subordinate flavour? A single coffee bean to provide that special kick to the entire dish. Again- all well and good, but how well I would be able to work with chocolate? I really don’t know – especially with time constraints
So down to my final idea, which will probably stay that way: a very local take on the tea time snack of cheese and crackers.
Okay it’s not going to win any Michelin stars but the effort was there.
Now I have to explain what exactly you are looking at. The disc, for non-locals or if you are just too young, is a Biscuit Piring Wafer – a snack that most Singaporean are all too familiar with. The cone is the cheese of choice and that little reddish dot is a single grape to cut through the creamy richness of the cheese.
Now, I just have to hope that this will stay assembled on Friday.
