Do some things just look better than they taste?


This beautiful bowl of fruit was awaiting me at the Island Shangi-La Hong Kong. Oh, did I say it hasn't stopped raining since we arrived 48+ hours ago?! Anyway this handsome piece of fruit got me thinking that sometimes pretty exteriors hide a bland interior – an not just on the culinary front. My Instagram friends came to the rescue when I couldn't remember what it was called. In fact, dragon fruit don't adorn the fruit counter at Waitrose guernsey, but I have seen them in more exotic places. When I finally cut into it I knew immediately what it was and what it tasted like. They often form part of a fruit salad in up market hotels around the world with their distinctive black seeds and colouring- distinctive look but in opinion ion forgettable taste. Oh well, pretty fruit bowl and it's all a matter of taste.

Would love to hear what you think looks nicer on the outside.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
