Over the course of our lifespan our food preferences change and become more refined. As children we often form dislikes for a particular food for reasons other than its flavour and texture – this is what’s known as food aversion.
I’ve had an aversion to ginger for as long as I can remember; from where it stemmed I am unsure but it’s been carried through to adulthood and I can smell it from a mile away in baked goods and chai drinks.
I decided to give the humble ground ginger another go and this was the perfect recipe to do so. The base is crunchy and oaty and the topping is silky smooth. I suggest you all make something you haven’t liked since childhood.
