So while we're on the topic of food (then again, aren't we always?), I thought I'd answer your ice-cream-planet post with some recent findings on weirdly coloured food. Blue and grey... it's so rare to find edible things in these colours, it almost feels wrong. So first we have a blue ramen soup
which is being served at a place in Nihonbashi, Tokyo. The soup contains Spirulina, a type of blue-green algae which contains something called phycocyanin
, that provides the colour as well as anti-aging benefits in the way of antioxidants. It's served cold and is intended to look as well as taste cooling and refreshing in the summertime. Does it work, who knows? But hey, it's blue soup, I'd try it! Then I've found for you a cake in greyscale. As I know you're not a big colour person, I thought you'd appreciate this especially. Who says dessert has to be all bright and pink and fruity looking, when you can have all that sugary goodness in lovely muted tones of grey? Although what I want to know is, what flavour is grey?
