A collection of sweets from around the world.
A treat or two at a nearby pastry shop in Rouen, France. These are called ‘Tacos of Nuts’ in one of the pastry pandemoniums in Mexico City. At the Verdi B&B in Bruges, Belgium – cherry custard pie for breakfast. From Japan, mochi, thin rice dough, as delicate as a baby’s earlobe, wrapped around a centre of gooey sweetness.A range of Spanish sweets sold in Toledo, Spain: cakes, chocolate, marzipan and ‘yemas artesanas’.A frozen dessert called Kulfi from India and Pakistan, with almonds, pistachios, strawberries and kiwis, dusted with edible silver. (How to make it.)The rice strips converted to sweet snacks and packaged at the snack factory on the Mekong River in Vietnam.Candied strawberries on a stick at the Chinatown Night Bazaar, Vancouver.I know this memorable pastry as Copenhagens, but in Copenhagen they call them Spandauer; get the ones with vanilla cream. Pastries for sale at the weekly market in the village at the end of Inle Lake in Myanmar.More of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Delicious.
