Welcome to lego land

I have had this dish in my head for about 3 months. The original idea came when I was building Lego's with my 2 girls. I originally thought about making broccoli or brussel sprouts that my kids would play with and eat. I wondered if my kids played with their food, they might be more open to eating their vegetables. The finished dish is pictured on tasting menu 41. Now that I have my mold I can make chocolate Lego's or pate fruit or whatever I want. These Lego's were made by clarifying stocks made out of shrimp, cilantro, corn, goat cheese and pineapple soy. We then added food coloring and used agar to gel the stocks.
