more valentines day




two dishes for valentine's day. it gets difficult in pastry when you try to be seasonal and come up with a day like valentine's day. could there be more of a wasteland of fruits than in the middle of February. here we are ending apples and pears(not too romantic), citrus is thinning(blood oranges for lovers?), and I refuse to use strawberries and raspberries when it has been raining so much and they have no flavor. here we have a chocolate fondant cake with tonka bean ice cream(my substitute for truffles) and tangerine. also a rose parfait, pistachio cake, a streusel made with freeze dried berries, and lychee coulis. why can't valentine's day be in the summer with juicy peaches and tangy strawberries. i'm gonna talk to someone about that.
