Taste the Rainbow.

Thursday, April 9, 2015

As a writer, I've spent a lot of time wondering about words: the sound of them, the look and feel of them, the shapes they make and the images they conjure. (Robert Pirosh captures this fascination to a tee here.) "What's the texture of 'anger'?" an old English teacher asked once. "If each season had a scent, what would it be?"  

With a six-part collection she calls COLORS, ice cream maker Jeni Britton brings a similar curiosity to the culinary world: when you see a color, she asks, what do you think you will taste? To her mind, for starters, the building blocks of velvet green are spirulina, lemongrass, and coriander. The sprightliness of yellow comes from lemons crushed whole. And the mysteries and many layers of black are laced with sea salt, licorice, and a splatter of dark chocolate. See more, here.

Have a happy Thursday!

Jeni such a creative genius. Not to mention she makes the best ice cream in the world.

Amanda, I've regretfully only tried it once or twice, but agreed — it's some of the very best!

So awesome and funny timing because just the other day, my mind was wandering and stumbled onto you and how amazing you are with words yourself :)

I am so in love with Jeni's color series. I get really excited when food and creativity come together. I can't get over that green color!
