In the JNF Kitchen: Grilled stone fruit with zuta sorbet
This dish was served as the dessert course in the first ever Maccabi Games Culinary Competition earlier this month. Team USA (Lior, along with Yehuda Sichel, and Lissadell Cohen) placed silver, and this dish definitely helped them get there! Grilled fruit is served over zuta and arak sorbet in a chilled soup. Here, we have a recipe for a sable cookie instead of the grissini created for the competition.
Mazel tov to Lior and team on this win! Enjoy this #RecipeOfTheWeek, and if you make any of these recipes, be sure to send a photo of your creation to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet it to @JNFUSA with the hashtag #JNFfoodie. We might share it!
