I am not really a rose flavored dessert lover because that taste reminds me such old-style bars of soap. I became aware of that eating my first rose macaron, in France. Yes, I tried macarons. No, they are not healthy at all! But a faint flavor of rose in a dessert is something that leads my head far away, in a smart and sophisticated Middle Eastern patisserie. I wasn’t searching a chic rose dessert, but just a healthy breakfast with a light rose aroma. I finally turned out with this.
Ps: I’m not a roses lover, not only when it comes to food. If you want to bring me some flowers, opt for peonies. Thanks.
