SFT FA's Zen Garden, Marzipan and Torrone

You’ll have to forgive the audio (again) at the end of the video. It did not sink as it should and I just ain’t fixin it.

Thanks, bro. It’s always difficult to know if something is funny to other people. Unless of course your at a comedy club and they ain’t laughin. LOL

I’m still none the wiser with that ethereal green … guess I’ll have to try it to know but somehow I doubt I’ll be so adventurous.

IRL I really love marsipan but I never found a way to incorporate this flavor in a recipe, same with the torrone. They’re strong and so incredibly dry that it’s just not pleasant for me to vape. It’s a real shame because the flavors themselves are pretty good. It’s definitely not good as a main flavor but could probably be used as a hint to add a little ‘spice’ to a desert recipe.

I always like flavor reviews so thanks for that, keep them coming :slight_smile:

Oh marzipan is a great flavour loads of things to use that with apples, cakes, irish cream, chocolate, peach, vanilla, apricot, custard to name a few i have used it with but the list is very long. I do like to boost the almond notes in FA Cookie with it.

I know, it’s used in a lot of bakery here and I eat it just plain as well. Most of it is sugar so you can throw it at just about anything. It’s just FA’s version of it that gives me a hard time. I’d probably buy a good version from another brand in an instant.

FA is pretty good you just have to find the sweet spot (stay low) - INW is perhaps a touch stronger and maybe a little sweeter but they are pretty close in taste.

I’ll probably give it another try, but I’ve used it as low as 0.1% and it still doesn’t bring back great memories :slight_smile:
Maybe it was just the recipes that weren’t so great… I was feeling for a good apple pie recipe anyways, maybe I’ll just throw in some and see where it takes it.

Enjoyed the review. Might be my favorite thus far.
Plus it had the dog, the cat, your mom, and your (I call it) “princess Leia” taster coil, which fascinates me. That, along with ethereal green notes and you’ve got a winner.
Why are you so bundled up? Is your room in the basement?

It’s mint.

LOL Two reasons. One, I live in MI and it has been cold lately and two, Yes I live in the basement where it is freezing balls, even in the summer. I made sure to get the dog in just for you.

Really? Huh, I’ll have to do some more.

Dude, love the website. I just registered. Being as how I am the cook around here and we really only cook with two types of meat. Fowl and Beef and creating something “different” is a pain in the arse so I think I’ll like this website. Thanks.

@woftam my bad. I attempted to register but there seems to be an internal issue. It’s weird though. You have it as ingredientpairings.com and the website has recipelabs.com but it’s the same. Do you belong to this site?

mmmm sounds awesome. I just recently was able to pick up a few flavors thanks to my man @Chef_Johnny and I grabbed my very first WF flavor. Sour Blue Raspberry Candy, I’m hoping it’s good.
