In SAFFRON NIGHTS, Maeve is served a delicious little dessert called Shanti’s Nipples. The woman serving them is Shanti herself, which gives Maeve a bit of a shock. But Shanti explains they are known as the Nipples of Venus to the rest of the world. These were mentioned in two movies—Amadeus and Chocolat. Aren’t they lovely?
