How did the hand pies look? Did you love the brownies? How many choux did you eat in one sitting? Yes, these are the things I think about. So today, after creating a gorgeous selection of our favorites for a client to send as a new year’s gift, I was given a gift of my own: direct feedback from the recipients of the pastries. I was so happy, I had to share it with you.

So here it is, you loving what we love. Maybe I don’t know where to look for spicy food in Europe, or maybe my idea of spicy differs from the palate here, but I’ve noticed that there’s a decided lack of spicy heat on this side of the pond. I haven’t turned into one of those spice monsters that travel around with ghost chilli pepper flakes in their pocket, but I do appreciate that tingly burn you get when digging in to a perfectly spicy dish.[/cl_text][cl_media image=”{‘id’:’284′,’mime’:’image%2Fjpeg’,’url’:’http%3A%2F%2Fcodeless.co%2Fpicante%2Fdefault%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2018%2F03%2Fpost-img-compressed.jpg’}_-_json”][cl_row_inner css_style=”{‘margin-top’:’40px’}_-_json”][cl_column_inner css_style=”{‘padding-top’:’40px’,’padding-bottom’:’40px’,’padding-left’:’50px’,’padding-right’:’50px’}_-_json” text_color=”light-text” background_color=”#222023″][cl_custom_heading typography=”custom_font” text_font_size=”24″ text_font_weight=”400″ text_line_height=”46″ text_letterspace=”1″ text_color=”#eae5d6″ color_icon=”#222222″]

QUICK PICKLE RECIPE

[/cl_custom_heading][cl_text custom_typography=”1″ text_color=”#9da7ac”]

1/2 TEASPOON SALT

1/2 TEASPOON SUGAR

1 CUP MATCHSTICK DAIKONS

1 CUP MATCHSTICK CARROTS

[/cl_text][cl_text custom_typography=”1″ text_font_size=”16″ text_line_height=”30″ text_color=”#9da7ac”]

In a bowl, sprinkle the salt and sugar over the carrots and daikons. Let stand for 30 minutes, rinse and enjoy. Warm your tortillas, spread with a bit of pate, squirt on a touch of mayo, and pile on the pulled pork. Top with daikon, carrots, jalapenos, cilantro and a squirt of sriracha. Squeeze on some lime and you’re good to go!
