~winter persimmon tart... . .


.  . ... so
what do we do with these
beautiful 
p  e  r  s  i  m  m  o  n  s 
?
well... .
what
would you
w a n t
t o
b e
?
hopefully... .
certainly
not
the
 u  s  u  a  l
 thing.
on a cool day
i'd want to be warmed up a bit in
b   u   t   t   e   r
... .   .
with just a sprinkle of brown sugar... .
maybe just a drizzle of balsamic vinegar... .
~ my life as a
p  e  r  s  i  m  m  o  n
 would now be ready for anything... .
~
i could now lay myself atop a lovely chilly quenelle
of the perfect ice cream~
a pure vanilla... .
a peppery dark chocolate... .
or spread on a nice warm
slice of humble toast.
but~
i think i would really like to rest
on a fluffy pillow of a
 spicy
g  i  n  g  e  r  e  d
 cream.
held
and
wrapped
in a crust made with
almonds
and
rosemary... .
then
garnished with
bright little squares of fresh
p e r s i m m o n
and feel the shimmering grains of
grapefruit sugar
and
julienned
r o s e   p e t a l s
come floating
down
over
the
top.
laid on
a crisp sheet of parchment
with the rose stem that held these
petals... .
then
i would be
presented in a box to
 r   e   s   p   e   c   t
each
ingredient.
~ every
p   e   r   s   i   m   m   o   n
deserves
 such 
a
      l i f e ... .
