Re: Flower close up

Fred,

Lovely and exotic.  I like the solid, contrasting background.  It holds up well in full size view.

Prickly but well done.  The full size views are worth the look -- sharp details.

It's a delicious  dish,  David.

If you do not mind my asking, what is the item in the foreground?

David Dollevoet

Not at all, David.  These are Palm flower fritters.  A very popular dish in central America.  And popular here in Los Angeles. I just learned how to make them. However, the batter I made does not contain flour.
