In the early months of 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. worked on a campaign to lobby on behalf of the poor. While planning a march in Washington, D.C. to urge Congress to pass further Civil Rights legislation, King was called to Memphis, Tennessee to assist in a sanitation workers’ strike. African American sanitation workers were protesting for equal pay and improved working conditions. On April 3rd, after his flight to Memphis was delayed due to a bomb threat, King spoke at Mason Temple, headquarters of the Church of God in Christ. Here he gave his last speech, known as the “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” sermon. King stated the famous words:
“…I’m not worried about anything, I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.”
King’s death evoked sadness nationwide and many African Americans were not only in mourning, but were outraged. A series of riots followed in more than 100 cities. Subsequently, the Civil Rights Act of 1968, known as the Fair Housing Act, was passed and signed on April 11th.
115g (1 cup) shelled pistachios, plus 2 Tbsp., chopped, for decorating
cup) caster sugar
cup) butter, softened
cup) self-raising flour
6 sheets leaf gelatin or 2 Tbsp. powdered gelatin
500g (2 cups) ricotta
250g (a little over 1 cup) mascarpone
100g (½ cup) caster sugar
25 cardamom pods
300g (a little over 1 cup) evaporated milk
cup) double cream (heavy whipping cream)
a few drops of pink food coloring (optional)
edible glitter for decoration
Whisk the egg white until it is foamy. Paint this on to both sides
of the petals, one at a time, using a small paint-brush, then sprinkle
with sugar. Lay on a sheet of baking-paper in a warm place to dry
overnight. Once dried, store in an airtight container until you are
ready to serve.
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. Line and grease a 23cm (9in) springform cake tin.
Finely chop the whole pistachios in a food processor or blender. In a large mixing-bowl, whisk together the sugar and butter
until creamy. Break in the eggs and beat again. Sift in the flour, add
the ground pistachios and stir well. Pour the mixture into the cake tin
and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the cake is golden brown and
springs back when pressed gently in the center. Leave to cool in the
Soak the gelatin leaves in water until soft. Whisk the ricotta, mascarpone and sugar together until light and creamy. Crush the cardamom pods to remove the husks, then grind the black seeds to a fine powder in a pestle and mortar.
Heat the evaporated milk and cream together in a saucepan with the
ground cardamom and rosewater and continue heating until the mixture has
reduced by one third. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.
Squeeze the water out of the gelatin leaves and add them to the warm
cream, if using powdered gelatin whisk in, stirring until dissolved. Pass the cream through a sieve to
remove any undissolved gelatin pieces, then whisk into the cheese
mixture with a few drops of pink food coloring, if using. Pour the
filling on top of the pistachio cake base and refrigerate for three
hours or overnight.
When you are ready to serve, arrange the crystallized rose petals on top and sprinkle with chopped pistachios and
edible glitter, if using.
