delectable THAI PAPAYA SALAD served here… Made a little differently…
Todays APPETIZER and RECIPE no 1…

Bratislava ??? Never heard of this place Isabella!
Twinny …..This is the fairy tale , pedestrian only ,
compact CAPITAL of SLOVAKIA..!
Good grief ! Don’t you think Isabella…… this
Zeppelin and Blimp business getting much too much???
No no Twinny ….Zeppelins and Blimps are TOTALLY DIFFERENT ..
Zeppelins are Rigid Airships…
Blimps are balloons with fins and engines…
Likewise the TEA served here ..is TOTALLY DIFFERENT!
GINGER TEA…..RECIPE no 2 coming right up..!
Take GINGER…lots of it , slice very small , Put in tall glass….Garnish with tons of mint 🍃 leaves
And honey 🍯
A dash of lemon juice …
Of course hot water!
No , NO TEA BAGS!
Now WAIT…. for the taste to emerge!
Done!!! So simple ..
Just 1 tip .. for NATURAL flavours to emerge use TONS of NATURAL ingredients!!
Isabella .. Thought MARZIPAN only meant to be eaten…. yes yes.. I know NATURAL INGREDIENTS… just HONEY and ALMONDS!
But this honey almond concoction can be rolled into dough and shaped into figures !
Just like Wax..!
Great Isabella .. but CANT EAT these!
And am superhungry! Hang in there Twinny ..
What the heck is that ?
