Menu detail

Corn Sformato
An Italian egg based custard, very similar to flan. My version uses corn as the base and this is the time of year to celebrate it! Farmer’s market corn is going to be best here. Cakey on the outside, and gooey in the center - you’re going to want to know how to make this. I also have a gluten-free recipe alternative as well.
White Chocolate & Brown Butter Crumble
Desserts are all about contrasting textures. Using white chocolate and toasted milk solids bring together some of my favorite flavors together to make this all-purpose dessert crumble rumble.
Preserved Strawberries
This recipe and technique works well for all types of summer berries. The addition of honey helps preserve the berries for storage and use all winter long.
