When I read about the contest launched by Cucina di Barbara dedicated to the color RED, I immediately started thinking about what I could prepare using this tone; I was searching for a light dish that enchanted me with its charming and fascinating color, full of meanings. They say red like love, red like passion, but red is also a sign of health (a ruddy face is always a sign of good health).
So, among all red food, I chose a fruit of the forest, red (needless to say) currants, rich in vitamin C, a vitamin that you've better stock up when fall is upon us, even if the temperatures still scream summer. But, to add red to red, I decided to add as a garnishment some Goji berries, i.e Tibetan berries rich in antioxidants, similar in taste to a cranberry with a spicy aftertaste, like cardamom.
And then I decided to combine this red body with a light mousse, white in color, matching not only tastes, but also colors, in a white and red verrine, a combination that I adore, in the kitchen or not.
