I’m talking about quince, an underappreciated fruit, on Iron Chef Jet Tila’s SoCal Restaurant Show. Get ready for the holidays with my easy to make desserts.
Seasonal fruit is always a pleasure to use and you can hear me talk about using persimmons and pomegranate in one dessert at www.kcrw.com/goodfood. Check it out and while you are at it, go to the Good Food blog and look for Your Quick Guide to Persimmons, and then also scroll down to the post which includes my recipe under Persimmons Poached in Pomegranate Juice with Toasted Walnuts for what I call “Late fall on a plate.”
Keep your eye on this spot for what will be happening in the next few months…..
Had a great response to the matcha tea baking and cooking class which was part of the TeaLovers Festival in LA. Hope to do more of the same in the near future.
Stay tuned for some exciting developments; I will be offering classes and participating and presenting at other events. Also be sure to log onto www.tching.com, the blog for all things tea, where I contribute a monthly column.
Cruise was great; I led a few fun demos and classes. It was on Silversea’s newest ship, The Silver Spirit, which left from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida; sailed to Cartagena, Colombia, through the Panama Canal (amazing experience!), Guatemala and then onto Mexico–Loved working with the chefs onboard who presented desserts based on recipes from my book, The Dessert Architect, for a special dinner onboard. Can’t wait to repeat the experience. Thank you Chef David Bilsland!
Listen up as I will be giving all kinds of ideas for holiday desserts based on seasonal produce (pomegranates, persimmons, citrus fruits and many others) on Food and Wine with Chef Jamie on KFWB radio….Go chefjamie.com to listen if you’re out of listening range.
Tune in to hear me on the Good Food radio show hosted by Evan Kleiman, in LA, just after 11 am PST talking about seasonal fruits from the Santa Monica Farmers Market; I’ll be interviewed by Laura Avery, longtime manager of the iconic market on the “Market Report” segment talking about what to do with the best of seasonal produce now at the market.
