It's time to share a few tea-related recipes I've run across recently. Actually, this first one is not so much a recipe as a nice picture and some information. It's a Green Tea Opera Cake featured at the Nordljus site. In response to the many commenters, the site owner has promised to try to get an actual recipe online.
I recently (yesterday) mentioned some iced tea recipes posted at the Sacramento CBS affiliate's page. That article also includes a recipe for Elegant Garden Teamisu, which is made with French Caramel Fudge Brulee Tea.
Chocolate And Zucchini recently featured Langues de Chat au Thé Vert, which are "classic French cookies that fall into the category of petits fours secs (dry petits fours, as opposed to miniature versions of pastries with buttercream, pastry cream, etc)". They're made with matcha and you can read all about them here.
Here's an article from one of the Australian papers about a Brisbane restaurant called Augustine's. The owner and chef there recently came up with a degustation menu that featured a different Twinings tea in each course.
As the article notes, "the dishes range from Queensland-farmed barramundi poached in lemon juice and green tea, to seared king prawn cutlets tossed in honey and chai, to duckling braised in Twinings raspberry and peach tea."
Scroll down to the end to see the recipes for Braised Duckling in Twinings Raspberry and Peach Tea and Oven Baked Pork Fillet Marinated with Twinings Blackcurrant and Apple Tea.
