A Small Gift... by © Janis Zroback

Greeting Cards & Postcards

Available to buy on…

I thought I might as well continue the chocolate theme since I had the watercolours out and add some more images to the “Delicious Collection”
Profiteroles are not as simple as the poached pear from yesterday, but they are the most delectable morsels you can ever put into your mouth…
The name is derived from the word profit, meaning small gift or small gain….isn’t that nice?
For the experienced cook who knows how to make Choux pastry, they are a snap to make…as always the best chocolate for the ganache, fill with flavoured whipped cream or ice cream and drizzle over the warm sauce…dust with powdered sugar if desired…
If you want to get really fancy, place them into a pyramid and make a croquembuche, but that calls for deft hands with caramel and is a whole different ball game…for now I have given you four delectable profiteroles…just enough for one
…ingredients below serve six…

Samples from the Delicious collection

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    lovley imag Janis and quite realistic, even dwn to the sugar on top.

  • I generally stay away from realism except in my food paintings where I think it’s pretty necessary if it’s going to look appetizing…I still give it a painterly look stopping short of photorealism which I have to do in my other art career but avoid doing here…I’m really happy you like it…thanks so much Catherine…
