Durian Cream Pie


  This is my contribution for the 49th Goumet Club meet: The Unified Theory of Deliciousness. The host of the club meet says “go take your favorite non Asian dish and go make it Asian OK?”.

Summer fruit galore! I stopped by the farmers market this morning and there are stone fruits of all colors on display. Peaches, plums, pluots and more, and they are all bursting in juices and flavors. How can you resist? I came back with a full bag of stone fruits. They are best eaten fresh and naked, but what else am Read More
