Have you ever had Vermicelles?
We stopped by a tearoom yesterday, little darling and I, to have pastries in the fashion of great ladies. She picked vermicelli made from chestnut purée. Inside a miniature cookie pie crust are crushed meringues (for which I still need to post the recipe) and whipped vanilla flavored cream, all topped with the chestnut worms (pardon my French). The first time I saw this dessert nearly twenty years ago, I thought I'd be sick.
But it is delicious, and an acquired taste. Eventually... you come to realize that you can't live without it.
Are you listening, Trisha? Write this down! :D
