Apple Spiral with a "Deco-Pin" from Visual Food

Today I received a present from Italy, from the talented Rita at Visual Food, the Blog
this little gadget!



So super cute!!! I tried it straight away on an apple, and I am already thinking about all the lovely things I could make! Maybe some raw food fusilli, decorations for cocktails e desserts, funky lunch boxes and side vegetables... do you have any other ideas for me? To give you an example Rita made this for Carnival! 

Thank you Rita, what a lovely present!

  1. What an awesome gadget! Could you make little spirals with 'digging' it into firm jelly made of agar-agar? You could make multi colour jeweled colours! Ooo...or maybe through a slab of polenta? So many possibilities! :-)

  2. Damn I didn't think of it and I ate my last slice of mango pudding (made with agar agar and quite firm!). Will try next time! Polenta? :-D!

    1. You know how you can cook polenta than pack it tightly onto a baking tray and bake it, then slice it - like brownies? So I was thinking...digging it through tightly packed cooked polenta that's been chilled (not baked). Then eat it like with fusilli pasta - with a sauce! :-)

  12. Oggi lho provato con le patate, per averne alcune arroste a ricciolini, ed erano proprio carini. CI vuole tempo però!

  13. This looks like a fun gadget. I wonder if the curlycue shape would get kids to try foods they normally wouldn't touch?

  14. This looks like a great gadget! It would be handy for using when making dried fruit. It would make dried fruit & veg into fun snack worms!
