Uncertainty, mystery, unexpected
The Moon Tarot card is one of the most mysterious cards in the deck. It’s a sign that things may not always be as they seem, and that some things can be deceiving when not expected. It reminds us to trust our instincts and decisions, and encourages us to face our fears. The Moon Tarot takes you on a path of self-discovery; by facing your fears, you will discover things about yourself and realise you are stronger and braver than you believe. Embrace the unknown, life isn’t all rainbows and sunshine.
Seared Salmon with Wild Rice
Salmon, with its silver-like appearance, can represent the Moon's mystical and reflective nature. The seared salmon, combined with wild rice, provides a harmonious blend of textures and flavours. The rice symbolizes grounding, while the salmon represents the intuitive aspects of the Moon.
Achievement, wholeness, possibilities
The World Tarot card represents the circle of life, importantly emphasising that firstly, what goes around comes around, and secondly, things take time. It reminds us that accomplishment is soon to come, but to stay grounded and patient. Reflect on your journey and remember the lessons you have learnt in life that have made you who you are today. Look back at all the joys and the positives in your life, and realise your potential. The world is your oyster, so do what makes you happiest. Write down your goals for your future, and admire them when you will inevitably achieve your dreams!
Create a fusion bowl that combines elements from various culinary traditions. Start with a base of grains or noodles. Top it with a blend of proteins like grilled chicken, tofu, or shrimp, and add a colourful array of vegetables. Finish it off with a drizzle of a flavourful sauce, such as soy or tahini, to bring all the elements together. This fusion bowl represents the harmonious integration of different ingredients and flavours, mirroring the completion and wholeness of the World card.
Confidence, determination, willpower
The Strength Tarot Plate is a new one for our collection, reminding us that we are always stronger than we may think. As humans, we really can overcome any obstacle that comes in life’s way. We are not controlled by others’ influence and persuasion, and we instead make our own decisions. It’s important to go through life with confidence, and when we may be burnt out or stressed, the Strength card encourages us to find the power within ourselves to keep on going. Overall, stay resilient and embrace your true passions and dreams, for you will always be your biggest critic.
Grilled Steak with Sautéed Greens
The strength and boldness of the steak represents the courage and resilience depicted in the Strength card. Accompany it with a side of sautéed greens, such as kale or spinach, which symbolize growth and nourishment. This hearty and satisfying dish embodies the power and determination associated with Strength.
Potential, choices, commitment
The Lovers Tarot card quite literally represents our connections and relationships, not just with others but more importantly ourselves. It suggests that when there’s a bond between two people, we must be open and communicate with each other, and can often encounter compromisation in order to create a stronger bond. The decisions we make are important, and it is completely normal to face possible crossroads within our relationships. However, on a less romantic level, this card strongly encourages self-love and discovery. We must honour our authentic selves in order to grow as people. Embrace your values and don’t be afraid to get personal, show your weaknesses, since you will always be loved.
For a decadent and interactive dessert experience, indulge in a chocolate fondue. Gather an assortment of fruits, such as strawberries, bananas, and pineapple, along with marshmallows for dipping. The act of sharing and dipping in the luscious melted chocolate signifies the bond and choices made together, emphasizing the loving nature of the Lovers card.
Joy, success, optimism
The Sun Tarot card, as expected, is pretty self-explanatory. A ray of sunshine is how we would describe this card, bringing joy and warmth to your life. It radiates with optimism and tells us that no matter what happens, there is light at the end of the tunnel. The energy of this card will get you through the darkest of times, emphasising that things will always work out. It brings out the young, playful versions of ourselves, and we should use this card as a reminder to not take life too seriously. Express your true authentic self and embrace the joys life brings you, for others will be drawn to your vibrancy.
Indulge in a citrus tart made with luscious lemon or orange custard. The vibrant citrus flavors evoke the sun's zestiness and bring a burst of sweetness and tanginess to your palate. The bright and sunny appearance of the tart reinforces the joyful qualities associated with the Sun card.
Blessings, hope, inspire
The Star Tarot card is a clear sign of things are on the right path. The universe is supporting your journey and encourages you to stay positive, especially after a difficult time. The card can often be seen as the guiding light, a card of reassurance, and a sign to trust your intuition. “Out with the old and in with the new” is something the Star Card truly represents, whatever emotional, spiritual issues you were experiencing are now behind you. Embrace the new beginning and stay hopeful, as good things are coming your way.
Honey Lavender Panna Cotta
Tuck into a delicate and aromatic honey lavender panna cotta for dessert. The sweet honey and fragrant lavender combine to create a dessert that embodies tranquillity and inspiration. The smooth texture and floral flavours evoke a sense of serenity, mirroring the celestial qualities of the Star card.
