I've been obsessed with the Great British Baking Show for a while.  Whilst googling recipes for a Charlotte Russe, I came across this video for a Frasier Cake:

 

 

Holy canoli.  I was hooked on Bruno.

 

He worked at Place Venome and was the head baker for Alain Ducasse at Plaza Athenee.  For some reason, he moved to San Diego.

Now he's pumping out videos.  Mostly amazing desserts, but a lot of terrific savory entrees.

 

I've tried the Frasier Cake and Plaisir Aux Nois:

 

 

Last night I made the Countryside Apple Pie (haven't tasted it yet):

 

 

I'll be doing the Banana Croustade tomorrow:

 

 

My goal is the Cara Damia:

or the Jaffa Cake:

Or maybe the Apple Shaped Dessert:

whatever you do, don't make the gulab jamun cheesecake as served at rasika in dc.


my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

 

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

These aren't meant to be eaten,    They're sculptures, art..   Ouvres de maĆ®tre.


It's not my circus,

not my monkeys.

There are no calories when licking the beaters.

 

You just have to compensate.  For example, to offset the apple pie I'll have tomorrow night, I'll skip breakfast and lunch.
