Flavour Profile: Pomegranate Orange


This week’s flavour is very simple and completely gorgeous. Pomegranates and oranges are so lovely they’ve long been inspiration for not only the culinary arts, but for generations of still life painters. So here are a few orange and pomegranate laden canvases from two of the genre’s historical high points: Dutch Golden Age Painting and French Impressionism. Basically what we’re saying is these macarons are edible art! (nbd.)
