TAPIOCA CREAM WITH STAR ANISE AND CANDIED GINGER

Tapioca

I feel quite boring right now, I think we all go through times when our own voice and the stupid things we bleat out sometimes make us think “What? Did I manage to say a thing like that? What has happened to me?” At least that is how I feel now and then and I wonder “Where did I go? What happened to what I once was?” As if I was any better then. The tricks we play on ourselves, the self deceptions, they never stop to amaze me. Anyway, I was going to say that I wouldn’t bore you today with a lot of words and here I go again, I should just shut up and get on with the recipe, that’s what I should do.


Tapioca cream, now that can sound booring, a quiet, rather bland dish but it is really very satisfying as comfort food. Well, I don’t think I need comfort right now, I need to wake up and get going mentally so I started with pepping up my tapioca cream with star anise and candied ginger! I made it a bit lighter by using both milk and water.
