Nadia Lahrichi and his sons Veronique and Kamil created a gadgets edible that caught my attention. It is a sort of edible sticks that change the dynamics of use typical of condiments.
As if they were pastels, these ingenious "tool foods" are directly "tempered" on the plates to add flavor.
Don't they bring to mind old memories? I'm sure you would never admit it, but some of you will have tried to bite into real crayons, back in kindergarten.
Seasoning pastels: will they become mass?
I found the nice (and bizarre) idea your Etsy, but I consider it more than an impromptu exit. In my opinion, this particular format could also turn on the light bulb to some better equipped company: in case you see things like this "big" in some time, remember who told you about it first.
Lahrichi sells single crayons for around € 13 (with sharpener included) in packs of three crayons for around € 27.
One hundred colors, one hundred flavors
Pastels are available in a wide variety of flavors. At the time of writing I am reading about basil, chipotle, shallot, lemon, raspberry and balsamic vinegar, spicy mango, chilli and garlic, piña colada, black garlic, fig and balsamic, curry and turmeric, tomato and thyme, ginger, carrot and orange ginger, lime, honey mustard, mandarin and cinnamon, grapefruit and timut pepper, mushrooms and coconut yuzu.
In spite of the name "pastels", in these Food Crayons there is no wax: if you really love the wax aroma you can always temper a traditional wax crayon.
Why do I keep imagining my guests spitting salad into napkins after tasting a plate "decorated" with these pastels?
