Creation of Deli-isher's Cuisine
Le Petit Gourmet D'or Edible Works of Art
The creation of Deli-Isher's Cuisine truly has been a Work of Art from the Heart, from knee high till now I have always loved cooking.
At one stage in my life my favourite bedtime reading was 'Cook Books' talk about Dreaming about food!
Diploma in Catering
Prior to my marriage I went to a Scottish Catering College gaining a diploma and learning all the basics of Fine French Cuisine!
Living in Kenya was paradise, with fresh produce daily (including the fish caught and brought to the house by local fishermen) it was here that my culinary skills took to wing!
Kenya Culinary Cottage Industry
I started my first 'Kenya Culinary Cottage Industry' making fresh deliveries every Friday to local national and international Clientele in Mombasa and Nairobi
'TV Presenting 'A Taste of Kenya' 13 part Cooking series
1997/1998 I was delighted to write and present a 13 part TV Series for KBC called a 'Taste of Kenya'
We filmed on location and I presented local and international Chefs as they created Gourmet food made with organic Crème de la crème ingreadients set to a backdrop of stunning 'Out of Africa' scenery a wonderful time in my life, where all my hearts loves and dreams rolled into one!
Renaissance & Creation of Deli-Isher's Cuisine
Upon returning to the UK I continued creating my Edible Works of Art, little Love Treats, Presents and gifts for family and friends.
In 2016 one dear friend who owns the Pittenweem Chocolate Company and Cocoa Tree Cafe a year-round haven in the heart of the picturesque, East Neuk fishing village, Sophie was the Catalyst inflaming my hearts spark and love into creating once again commercially my Edible Works of Art .
Sophie loved my 'Confitures so much that she wanted to create a new Chocolate using my product the Exclusive limited Edition Strawberry Rose petal Confiture infused with edible gold!
Once I started in MA's Edible Art Studio I could not stop such happy times, reminding me of being a little girl again when I baked with my grandmothers and once again summer 2016 I recreated just so many of my happy kitchen day memories!
Deli-isher's Cuisine is an Art from my heart and as my motto says
Motto: "Let the Beauty We Love
Be What We Do"-Rumi 13th century
My Renaissance my Golden Era of Cuisine has begun and I am feeling that and so much more than happy!
Welcome to the
Creation of Del-isher's Cuisine!

"Rabbie's Red Red Rose Cocktail"
The Rose, beautiful queen of flowers, heart inspiration of poets painters & Gourmet Connoisseur's
The lore of the red rose begins in ancient Greek and Roman mythology with its symbolic union with Aphrodite (Venus) the goddess of love. Later, it is said that Queen Cleopatra had red roses strewn about her bed chamber floor to welcome her lover, Marc Antony.
The language of the flowers, which finds its roots in Ottoman Turkey, became a method of covert communication among lovers in the 1700s who felt the need to hide their feelings from society. It was during this time that the red rose became the symbol of true love which has the ability to overcome obstacles remain everlasting. The red rose truly is the representation of legendary romantic, triumphant and abiding love.
As Robert Burns transended thought into feeling the language of his heart through Poetry and song
Deli-isher's has transended creative thoughts of the rose into Edible Work of Art with Gourmet Food & Drink
Thank you Antosa x

Deli-Isher’s Edible Works of Art
Cocktails & Mocktails
Leonardo Da Vinci Mona Lisa Cocktail
The painting dates back to 1550. It is believed that Da Vinci took up this commission due to financial issues but he did not complete it immediately. Also, the painting was never delivered to the family and travelled with Da Vinci wherever he went.
The Mysterious Mona Lisa
In 2005, an expert at the University Library of Heidelberg discovered a margin note in the library’s collection that established with certainty the traditional view that the sitter was Lisa.The note, written by Agostino Vespucci in 1503, states that Leonardo was working on a portrait of Lisa del Giocondo.
Deli-Isher'sEdible Works of Art Cocktail is inspired by the maraschino-tinged Hemmingway Daiquiri and in honour of the Renaissance Artist Leonardo Da Vinci Mona Lisa who for centuries remained elusive and Mysteriousas to her identity

Deli-isher's Exclusive' Leonardo Da Vinci Mona Lisa Mocktail
You may wish to substitute Dark Rum with Ronsin a tempting non- alcoholic alternative for Rum that can be effortlessly and endlessly combined. Ronsin contains the same basic ingredients as regular rum, but the difference is that these ingredients haven’t been fermented and thus haven’t been turned into alcohol, which gives this non- alcoholic alternative for rum a full sweet taste. Ideal for mixing!

Throughout all of History Food and Drink has been revered
Ancient civilizations were fascinated with Food and Drink from daily basic sustenance to feasting & banqueting, Food & Drink always hasbeen and continues to be in this 21st Century a major focus in all our lives.
During my research and in the creation of my Deli-isher’s Cuisine Le Petit Gourmet D’or I was fascinated with the history that ran alongside Food and Drink
(Left :Thetis anoints Achilles with ambrosia, by Johann Balthasar Probst (1673–1748)
In no particular historical order I will share my love of ‘Edible Art History’ with you and where better to start than in
Ancient Greece Food of the Gods & Goddesses
Food was such an important part of Greek life because it was always connected to the Gods.
The Greeks loved their Gods & Goddesses so much that they even made food and drink that only they could eat (now that would be a recipe book to find and follow!:)
Food & Drink fit only for the Gods & goddesses Nectar the drink of the gods & Ambrosia the food of gods why? Well the following are good enough reasons
It was said that whoever consumed Ambrosia no longer had blood in their veins, but another substance called ichor (the golden fluid that flowed in the veins of gods and immortals)
Nectar was called the divine drink it had the magical property to confer immortality on any mortal who had the luck to drink it.
Deli-isher’s Cuisine is a play on the above as the signature ingredient in the Le Petit Gourmet D’or Confiture’s & Nectars is edible 23 / 24 Carat Gold perhaps I should have called them Deli-ichor!
I cannot promise immortality, but only that once you have tasted Le Petit Gourmet D'or you will wish to stay alive to taste more!
Have a wonderful week
