Two new culinary elixirs from the Easy Tasty Magic™ range by Laura Santtini Spellbinding Flavours

Angel Mist & Broken Halos and The Devil’s Breath

U-mamma! Hot on the heels of her Taste #5 Umami Paste™ and the glittering launch of her Food Bling – edible gold and silver flakes and kits – come two potent mists which combine the notion of a potion with the sparkle of edible noble metals. The Devil’s Breath is a transformational mist of brandy liqueur with chilli and edible 23 carat gold flakes. Angel Mist & Broken Halos combines grappa and edible silver flakes. Both can be used to transform drinks and food with the quickest of spritzes and make unusually inspired gifts.

With the summer drawing to an end, transformation is on everyone's minds. As the leaves begin to turn vibrant shades of gold, orange and red, summer’s light and refreshing dishes of carpaccio, ceviche and crudo can be transformed by a light, alcoholic misting with accents of gold and silver.

From ordinary to bling at the push of a finger, few things pimp up a fine autumnal supper more than a squirt of gold. Hearty vegetable soups, slow-cooked stews and blackberry crumbles that warm the soul can be transformed from modest comfort foods to wickedly flavoursome dishes that look devilishly delicious.

‘These seductive boozy atomizers are all about taking the glamour of the boudoir to the table, and because they are mists you get the heady without the headache!’

Angel Mist & Broken Halos
A transformational grappa liqueur and edible silver spray for food and drink.
Grappa is a pure white grape-based elixir with fruit aromas and a legendary potency. The grappa is produced and supplied by Distilleria Bottega, an award-winning Italian distillery that have been producing grappa for 3 generations. For centuries, Italians have sipped this Italian Elixir after meals and even added a little to their morning espresso, to "correct" it. For pure bling, mist a dozen freshly shucked oysters with Angel Mist & Broken Halos or let the fine droplets and silver flakes dance seductively over a trembling panacotta. Also delicious on a simple lemon pasta or risotto.

The Devil’s Breath
Warning: Contains 23 Carat Guilt
With sweet notes, potent heat and a tantalising shimmer, this brandy liqueur is infused with a drop of lucky red chilli pepper and a generous pinch of edible gold flakes. Expel an alchemic breath of this brandy liqueur mist over fillet steak in a creamy mustard sauce, dark chocolate mousse or a simple pasta with pan fried chicken livers and sage. The ideal final touch to a creamy hot chocolate. The brandy liqueur is also produced and supplied by Distilleria Bottega.

Easy Tasty Magic™ is part of Laura Santtini’s Spellbinding Flavours range. Also featuring within the range is Laura’s Credit Crunch Chocolate and Taste #5 Umami Paste™. With a little abracadabra, Easy Tasty Magic™ empowers cooks of all levels with spectacular kitchen wizardry.
