Asian Flavors

Although I absolutely love the food, working in an Italian restaurant somewhat limits my ingredient list.  So when I'm experimenting at home, I love to get my hands on ingredients that I don't utilize daily.  The following is a dessert inspired by Asian flavors.

Yuzu Meringue Tart [09.28.2009]

The tart shell is a typical pate sucree.  I made a yuzu curd on the stove top, filled the shells with it and finished it off in the oven.  It is topped with a Swiss Meringue and pieces of black & white sesame brittle.  Although I'm easily drawn to tart flavors like yuzu, I must say that the sesame brittle definitely stole the show!

For any who are interested, the reflection in the image is caused by my just polished countertop.
