Bake for exactly 16 minutes. The cakes will double in size, and then fall when removed from the oven. It’s OK; this is how it’s supposed to be. 7. Allow the cakes to cool in the tin and separate them from the sides with a butter knife. lightly remove when ready to use. FOR SERVING Strawberry Sauce (here) Strawberry Gelato (here) Macerated strawberries To serve: Smear some strawberry sauce on a plate. Tear the pea cake into 3 pieces and top with macerated strawberries, a scoop of strawberry gelato, and a few of the candied split peas. 2. greens those days utilizing greens in fancy cakes is general. There is even—awkwardly, inexplicably—a backlash. while my cordon bleu did a tasting for a power activity at a new eating place recently, he made a roasted apple dish with candied fennel, caramel, and chunks of toasted sesame semolina bread. I helped him craft it. I was sure it was going to kill. The young owners smirked: We have moved beyond savory desserts. I pictured this as a New Yorker cartoon, the proprietors as bespectacled, turtlenecked bohemians and my sous as a walrus or a cow in a chef’s coat doing a “Wha’ happen? ” à la Fred Willard. I use greens simply because I like greens. I have precisely no curiosity in showing “edgy” or avantgarde. I’m more grandma than crazy scientist guy, I assure you. But, yes, there is no denying that I use a lot of savory stuff in my desserts. Beyond vegetables, I also overuse olive oil, bread crumbs, and vinegar. Those are some of the best things in the kitchen. It’s weird not to use them. Being referred to as a savory pastry chef used to irritate me, but that’s basically what I am, so I wear it proudly now. Really, I’m simply the man who makes the stuff that comes at the finish of the meal. (I have included tomato recipes in this section because after much waffling, I realized that putting tomatoes in the fruit section was even more pretentious. ) AVOCADOS AND STRAWBERRIES Pity the avocado. As guacamole, it is persistently violated and sullied stateside as the plaything of frat boys, sorority sisters, and ugly American chain eating places. Too frequently plowed with soapy cilantro and sarcastically aggressive raw red onions, American guacamole can be a disservice to the avocado’s nature. It’s shameful the things we do to the noble avocado sometimes. Avocado is not Italian. But it’s a fatty fruit (fattier than . . . all the fruits? ), and as such it is at home in my version of the Italian kitchen, despite what some authenticrats are feeling. It is strange and awkward, bulbous and delicate, the Rocky Dennis of fruit. Avocado is mildly sweet, green, and creamy, now not that weirded out by being the accidental star of a dessert. So here is avocado in a hotel bathrobe, fresh off the set, filming an self reliant movie destined for simple cable. It’s a cool movie, one that won’t make any money, but one that will be championed by the punks long after everyone else has forgotten about it.
