I tried to think of a food beginning with ‘Z’ but nothing came to me so I thought Zest would probably be a good ending to the A-Z challenge.
I started on a dessert & I’ll end on an ingredient that goes into desserts. Ooh now that made me look clever & imaginative.
At school I did food technology as part of my GCSE’s, most desserts I made listed the Zest of a: orange/lemon/lime. Zest seemed to be put in everything & I felt like I was always grating a fruit of some kind. Then it advised in the recipe that you could always decorate the dessert with a sprinkle of Zest.
If you watch cookery programmes you can see that by grating or peeling the chefs always manage to use the zest of a fruit. I mean it does give the dessert an extra zingy taste & it does help a good dessert taste that little bit better. I wonder who came up with the brainwave of using the zest.
Well that's it, the end of the A-Z Challenge. It has been a roller coaster ride & one that I enjoyed every moment of. I have had some lovely new readers & I have found some really great blogs out there that i shall be following from now on. Thank you to all those who did this journey with me & I'm sure that this time next year I'll be doing another A-Z challenge!
