my 1st plated dessert! as you know, i’ve always been fascinated with the plated/molecular stuff and hv wanted to attempt making but i was too intimidated with the number of components as well as hard-to-find ingredients like microgreens as well as the various chemicals like xanthan gum and calcium chloride. this recipe is from johnny iuzzini’s dessert fourplay, a book that had been so underutilized (i’ve only used it once) so i’m glad i was able to find something relatively simple from it that doesn’t require the use of any chemical.

Corn Panna Cotta, Lemon Madeleine & Spiced Walnuts

i’ve gotten some metal cannoli tubes recently so i couldn’t wait to put them into good use. this recipe has basically only two components so its pretty easy to put together. tastewise, i really love the unlikely combination of corn and lemon and i thought the lemon madeleine sponge was really quite mind blowing! its so tart and lemony it tastes exactly like lemon curd. i love it! the only thing was i wondered if there was any error on the instructions for the sponge. given the quantity it was impossible that the baking time was 6-10 mins, as stated. indeed, it took me about 25 mins to bake.

anyhow, top chef : just desserts season 2 has premiered! be sure to check out chef iuzzini, the eye candy :p
