Flower power


Flower Power

The thing I love most about winters is the bounty of
colorful flowers, fruits & vegetables that it brings along.
The season offers the widest choice in fleshy fruits, leafy
vegetables & colorful tubers. Bright red & purple maroon
carrots swiftly overtake the orange colored English carrot
market, the harder variety of summer guavas are replaced
by their soft n aromatic white & pinkish fleshy cousins .
The colorful scenic vegetable & fruit markets constantly
remind that spring is not too far .........



Floral Inlay Salad
(Inspired by the Indian floral marble inlay designs)

Sliced guavas & carrots on a cabbage leaf
(Using a flower shape cookie cutter cut out flowers from the centre of sliced
guavas & carrots. Replace the flowers of carrot with guava & vice versa)
