lucuma is a fruit native to peru. its flavors are very similar to that of maple syrup.

i was very excited in making this dessert. i had never tried lucuma. i ask my mother if she had (we are from bolivia). she said yes and she said she loved it. so this dessert was made with my mothers palette in mind.

lucuma bavarois / hazelnut shortbread / smoked hazelnuts / basil syrup / texas goat cheese
