Pearly Arabian nights : crème persane à l’orange

This is the thousand and one post on this blog… or nearly. So let’s celebrate with a sweet story.
It has the name of a tale you read to kids at bed time : crème persane (Persian cream), because it’s an old style dessert French grannies would make for children… or because it actually comes from old Persia ?
No idea, it’s simply a mousse with tapioca pearls in it.

I wondered if that existed only in France, and I found that in English a “cream Persian” is a furry sofa ornament like this :

If you want to buy this “cream” in Spain -I don’t know the company, only linked the photo- the shop is there.

It’s flavored with orange peel, juice and a hint of Grand Marnier.

Light and fresh…

Holes and bubbles.

The juicy bottom.
