my 1st plated dessert! as you know, i've always been fascinated with the plated/molecular stuff and hv wanted to attempt making but i was too intimidated with the number of components as well as hard-to-find ingredients like microgreens as well as the various chemicals like xanthan gum and calcium chloride. this recipe is from johnny iuzzini's dessert fourplay, a book that had been so underutilized (i've only used it once) so i'm glad i was able to find something relatively simple from it that doesn't require the use of any chemical.

there's nothing like a nice cup of matcha latte to wake up to in the morning. i frequently order this at starbucks but ever since i found out its so easy to make and so delicious as well, i've taken to making my own.

this is the 5th hidemi sugino's recipe that i've attempted and i think i've put this off long enough. being too time consuming to make is one thing (it has 8 components in total including the decor) but i must say that glazing cakes hasn't been my forte and it still isn't. then again, this is the entremet that won mr. sugino the 1991 world pastry cup (coupe du monde de la pâtisserie) so could i possibly miss it? no i couldn't.
