Lemon delicious, with a name like that it better be delicious. And thats for you to find out. You must wonder what kind of a dessert is a ‘delicious’. Most probably of Australian origin, lemon deliciousis a golden sponge with a creamy lemon sauce. It is very light and lemony, crusty on the outside and creamy on the inside. It is delicious, and I think I have over-used this word. You can also call this lemon soufflé pudding or lemon sponge, if you prefer. The recipe is available here.

A mince pie worth £3,000 (US$4,600) has set a new world record for being the most expensive mince pie.
Its no ordinary pie, of course. It has been designed by food design firm Astarism, in London. The pie contains platinum leaf, a solid platinum coin, holy water from Lourdes to bind the pastry, vanilla beans and cinnamon from eastern spice markets and highly prized ambergris sugar derived from sperm whale secretions. Appetising, isn’t it! I am sure the whales are laughing at us, and they should. I wonder what value human secretions would attract.
The pie also contains a 1920s cognac. The pie took more than a week to create, was designed on a computer and cut with a laser.
I guess you won’t be seeing this pie at your local supermarket anytime soon. It is like one of those concept cars, bucket loads of money is spent on developing it, its price tag is way out of reach of the average person and most of the cars never go into production. We are humans, we often do things of little relevance and practicality, but we like it.
