Expensive Sweets

Forbes Traveler online has an article that contains a breathtaking slide show on the world’s most expensive sweets. It made this foodie’s jaw drop. One dessert has a gem resting on chocolate that cost more than my university education. Another comes with a Saint Louis crystal atomizer. Several involve edible 23 or 24 karat gold leaf. And we haven’t started going into rare ingredients yet: truffles, Manjaree chocolate, and rare cognac. Wow…Just wow…I guess some people in this world can really afford to eat well.

Mild-mannered IT professional by day and food blogger by night, I founded foodiePrints with a single intention, to share my love of all things food. My first post shared a recipe. Many followed. Eventually, I learned Ottawa prepares and serves great food. Thereafter, I started meeting restaurateurs, chefs, cooks, farmers, and other local producers, all good people. Ideas for food-related content swirled in my head. foodiePrints grew into a place to put them. From exploring foreign and domestic cuisines to shopping for exotic ingredients and cobbling together my takes on dishes in my meager kitchen, there are stories to tell. Welcome to foodiePrints. Here, you will find stories about food and drink, cooking, and eating in Canada’s capital. Be it food-related or just food-for-thought, I hope you find something tasty here.
