My music/video producer and friend, Alan Ishii created this lovely little showreel of my cooking. What do you think? He's very talented, yes?
The ricotta tart is almost cheesecake-like but a little more dense and filling, while still seeming light and refreshing. A perfect accompaniment to a sparkling dessert wine on a summer evening.
Turmeric Gelato & Floating Islands
I love the Indian spice turmeric and am always looking for ways to incorporate it into my cooking. I came across fresh turmeric root in a store along with fresh plums. It gave me the idea for a homemade gelato topped with the stone fruit. The result was beautiful. Ice cold sweetness, glorious color and the slight bitterness of the spice offset by the tanginess of the fruit. Perfectly wonderful!
