    Carrots with chocolate?! Intriguing! Would that be in a cake of some kind?

    • Mauricio Seckler

      Yes, It’s a cake . The carrot is used in the cake and it’s covered with chocolate. And cheese and guava are called here ” Romeo and Juliet”. The cheese resembles Feta cheese and it’s eaten with a guava preserve.

    I’ve used guava jam as a cheeseboard accompaniment for years. Came from an experience in the Caribbean. Just delicious with a really strong cheddar, but as you can imagine, equally good with Somerset brie, for example.

      Hi Stephen
      Thank you for getting in touch. I tried guava jam when I was writing a few extra entries for the Brazilian edition. They serve it with cheese and call it Romeo and Juliet. I didn’t try it with brie though – it sounds good.
      Best wishes
