At the Modernism Show in Denver there were many booths displaying vendor’s merchandise. This human- like sculpture stood guard over one of them.
This sculpture is mixed-media, but the skin covering is of mini colored marshmallows. I don’t know if his name is Art, in fact, I don’t know if it’s a man or a woman. The person standing in front of it is actually having a little conversation with it so I gave them both a wide berth.
I found that http://www.food.com/ has 4,439 recipes with marshmallows.
It’s Kitschen Dictionary says:
” There is a marshmallow plant, and marshmallows used to be made from the extract of its roots, but today it is made of corn syrup, gelatin, gum arabic, egg and flavorings. The gelatin is softened in water and gum Arabic and flavorings are added. They look like little fluffy pillows of sugar. Marshmallow creme is a thick, whipped mixture of the stuff sold in jars. Commercial marshmallows where introduced in the 19th century. Marshmallow cream is also available in jars and is simply whipped marshmallow. Marshmallows are loved by adults and children. Marshmallows come in two sizes large and mini. They can be eaten as is, placed on top of hot chocolate, used to make desserts if many kinds.
Season: available year-round

I’m glad they’re available year-round.
And I wonder if there’s a place that can ship me marshmallow plants so we can have marshmallow dishes the way nature intended.
