If you love dulce de leche and lava cake I am sure you will love dulce de leche lava cake. And if you don’t love either of them then I feel sorry for you! This lava cake is delicious, just the way it should be, and it behaved appropriately too. As I fondled its sides with my spoon the ‘volcano erupted’, spewing out gooey liquid gold.
At this point I was reminded how challenging food photography is, even though I am certainly not a professional food photographer. It may seem easy and fun to point your camera and click but when there is a luscious dessert sitting lonely and waiting for attention it is extremely challenging to pick up the camera instead of the spoon, or keep your fingers off. And this is what happened when I photographed the dulce de leche lava cake. I had never tried dulce de leche lava cake, actually I have never heard of it either, I was absolutely dying to taste it. It was like torture, taking photos when I could smell and almost taste the cake. However as I am writing this the plate has already been licked clean. There is not even a trace left.

The focus on eating insects has been increasing recently, and now the European Union thinks insets should start appearing on menus after experts in Brussels recommended that bugs could be a vital source of nutrition. The European Commission is offering £2.65million into a project to promote eating insects.
Insects are a cheap way to help save the environment and solve the food shortage crisis. Insects emit fewer greenhouse gases than cattle, require less feed and are viewed as more environmentally friendly. They are rich in calcium and protein, while low in fat.
Professor Marcel Dicke from Wageningen University in Holland believes that by 2020 insects will be available in supermarkets. He gave an example of eggplants and sushi, foods that were not eaten in Europe previously. Now they are quite popular.
It is interesting to observe the food trends. Foods like sushi, tofu and hummus were relatively unknown until not so long ago, now they have become really popular. Insects are presently being eaten in some parts of the world while the rest of the world probably thinks it is disgusting. Fast forward 5-10 years and insects would well become just a normal food item. If all goes to plans I could be having deep fried grass hoppers with my beers. Interesting times ahead.
