Oliver Experience

I am so sorry for not updating at all. I have been so busy and just out of it. My relatives came from Hong Kong and they haven't been in Toronto for the longest time! And of course, my pinky is still messed up.

Blah who am I kidding, I have just been cheap and lazy. Ya, that pretty much sums it up. Anyways, my relatives requested a daniel oliver experience. So wa la, two infamous dessert for your viewing pleasure.

First, I made meringue with ice-cream and marinated strawberries from 3 chefs.

for the meringue:
egg whites
lemon juice
vanilla extract

white wine

I know, I made meringue countless times and its getting so boring but this time was seriously different. When it came out of the oven (baked at 220 for an hour) it looked white and crispy! When I assembled everything and finally got to taste it, it was like a macaroon! What did I do?! Even my sister's boyfriend said it tasted like a macaroon. The other element that made this meringue special was the strawberries. Honestly, I couldn't taste the vodka that much and I didn't add white wine because I didn't have any at all. Oh well next time. This was still a winner though. =)

Second, I made Michael Smith's fruit crisp. ( Both classics )

Fruit Crisp:

3 lb fruits of your choice
( I did raspberries, blue berries, black berries and strawberries )
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
125 ml butter
150 ml flour

Still, the fruit crisp is always a conversation starter. My uncle simon, whom is not a big fan of desserts, was all over this one. It is just an easy fix and I thought of this last minute! You guys have to try this.

Oh how I miss you guys and miss updating my blog for you viewers. Let's see, I think my next project will be a japanese cheesecake. But who knows, its always subjective to change. I'll keep you guys posted and thanks for visiting. =)
