FFwD ~ Arman’s Caviar in Aspic

 My received stash of holiday cards from my fellow Doristas
so far:
 I made this dish some months ago when the Doristas
first started lamenting over it
and I had to throw out the whole thing after one taste
a similar reaction like H.E.R.E.
now that its finally here 
I made sure I don't repeat the same mistake
instead of fish stock, I used anchovy stock cube
and poured the liquid into 
small moulds
and remembering how yucky this tasted the first time I made it...
I bought some pickled ginger and ee ikko from the sushi corner
for garnish or rather..
to mask the taste (or non-taste)
 I ate four pieces of the mini ones 
and left hubby one mini piece and that big piece in the center
and topped up with more ginger
 and it looks like he is the only person
who really like the aspic
cos he said 'its better without the ginger'
so there you are!

Thanks for dropping by for a visit and leaving me a comment!


  1. Well Emily…great minds! I made mine in cannelle molds too! They looked so pretty, as do yours! I however, made mine with Champagne and not fish broth! I love the idea of the ginger! Happy Friday!

  2. LOL - I admire the fact that you made it twice. It looks pretty.

  3. Ah, very interesting! You're also incredibly brave to have made it a second time! It does look beautiful and is that the cannelé mold?

  4. I love the shapes of your aspic. I also love the idea of "sushi-izing" the toppings. Nice job, Emily!

  5. Yay, I'm so happy to hear that someone liked this one! I was seriously starting to feel badly. Kudos to you for making it again. I wonder if the problem so many of us are having is that we used fish stock because we couldn't find bouillon.

  6. Emily, not only do you just 'go back for more' but you always include ideas I'm unfamiliar with or food products I cannot even pronounce. Kudos for making this a second time and kudos to your husband for liking it. 1. I didn't know there were anchovy stock cubes. 2. I am unfamiliar with ee ikko. 3. I like your creativity with the cannelé mold.

  7. Great idea and changes. I am glad that somebody liked it. I did a make-up with soup instead.

  8. I can't believe you did this not once but twice! You are indeed adventurous and win the prize!

  9. Woo hoo! I am so glad that at least one person liked this dish. Bravo.
