The challenge for March from Creative Cooking Crew is “The Perfect Bite”.
I had my perfect bite, but one of my friends raided my refrigerator during the middle of the night and ate it. She gave it a thumbs up, but no pictures.
Just got back from a week in Puerto Rico and found another perfect bite. I did a post on tembleque a while back. It is one of my favorite childhood deserts.
When I saw it on the menu, I had to order it especially when it was served with a cilantro sauce. The Chef promised to e-mail me the recipe and forgot. I then thought of adding the mint.
All you have to do is make a simple syrup and once the syrup has cooled add 1/4 cup of cilantro leaves and about 20 of mint then blend…must say it worked out well and I got to eat it this time.
I don’t the chef could have done a better job. He’d better hang on to his apron … your version is gorgeous!
Thanks Joan. It was.
that looks so good! I can taste it!
Me encanta el tembleque!!!

I love this tembleque idea… how can you go wrong with a coconut custard? Brilliant idea of adding a cilantro kick to the mix. A perfect bite indeed.
This really looks amazing and I am so curious about this sweet cilantro mint sauce
Looks amazing and world class. Nothing I’m familiar with which is what makes this so fun.
I love coconut. I love custard. So, I’m certain I would love this! I am curious about the sweet cilantro mint sauce, will have to try that one day to mix things up. Your guest was very lucky!
I would have never thought of making a sweet cilantro sauce. Wow, looks beautiful and delicious!
