Sugar-Dusted Cannoli and a Lemon Curd Tart
Five-Course Friday: Dec. 14, 2012
From rustic biscuits to elaborate desserts, iconic Italian dishes to classic Japanese technique, our students traveled the globe this week at ICE.
Students reminded us of the beauty of a simple biscuit in Chef Gerri Sarnataro's Pastry & Baking Arts class.
Chef Sabrina Sexton's students, after a rigorous tour of Italy, jumped continents, serving up Japanese sushi.
Chef Erica Wides' students celebrated la cucina povera, whipping up handmade pasta like this simple, satisfying gnocchi.
The renown pâtissier Carême likened pastry to architecture. Chef Sim Cass' students' plated desserts - like this lemon curd tart - suggest his theory be true.
There are certain pleasures almost everyone enjoys and a sugar-dusted cannoli is surely one of them. Chef Gerri Sarnataro's class made the ICE staff drool with these iconic Sicilian beauties.
