Well thanks a lot Britain, now I can’t go live in France and become the world’s most famous pastry chef… Not that I was ever gonna do that but now I know I can’t, I’m bitterly disappointed. In all seriousness though, I’m gutted we voted to leave the EU, going against Steven Hawking can never be a good idea.
Anyway, lets not dwell and talk about another upsetting subject, fruit in salad. Personally, I think fruit belongs in cakes, on top of granola or in a nice decorative bowl so get your apples and raisins out of my salad please thank you.
“So why is mango okay?” I hear you ask.
Well, I guess it isn’t but seeing as the world has just ended lets live dangerously.
This recipe was actually inspired by some canapés I created for heat magazine earlier in the year. Basil leaves speared on cocktail sticks and sandwiched between a mini mozzarella ball, a mango chunk and rolled in dried chilli flakes, et voila! Posh pineapple cheese on a stick. They were utterly yum and thus inspired this cheeky recipe. Enjoy!
