not a novice question at all. a very good question. if you dont ask, you'll never learn, right?

i cold smoke them.

i was introduced to smoke wood by chef randy. he gets them from a japanese company.

all you do is break a small chunk off of the compressed block. light it. blow the flame out and cover you item tightly with the smoke. after 30 minutes or so its smoked and delicious!

come by the restaurant and try my stuff!!

ok.. I'll bite. I was inspired by the thought of duck confit buttercream.

Buffalo mozzarella cheese(cup)cake, basil buttercream, sundried tomato

maybe my idea is a little too normal for you... but i still think that classic strawberry-rhubarb should be played with....

it's ok to dedicate the dessert to me when you're finished... =)
