Annnnnd, that’s a wrap folks! Yep, I aired my final “What Was That?” episode last week on my Instagram Stories. Did you miss it? That’s just not okay (insert crying emoji face), but luckily for you, they’re all still there! And luckily for you, the last episode was a good one. All about a little cake called Torta Della Nonna!
Are you watching Top Chef at all this season? If not, you should be! I love the creativity of this season’s chef’s and Carrie is becoming my big-time favorite! In fact, this recipe, is a riff on the recipe she made last week. She lovingly calls it “Fancy Toast,” so I’m calling it that too. Because really, anytime you top toast with more than just butter it becomes “fancy,” right?
Picture this, you’ve just finished a delicious meal at a great restaurant and shortly after, your server comes to the table and hands you the dessert menu for you to peruse. After a quick look, you find yourself reaching for your phone because it’s time to do some research. Panna cotta? What the heck is that? Maybe you’ve heard of panna cotta, but you don’t actually know what panna cotta is. Right? Am I right? Don’t worry about it! I’m here to save the day!
For most of us, confit is not a term that’s commonly used in our vernacular. It’s fancy, it’s French, and we’re not “confit-ing” much on a daily basis. But, um, while we’re on the topic, what the heck is confit? It’s okay that you aren’t sure, that’s why I’m here! And I’ve got a recipe to make things even better. That’s right, Creamy Dreamy Garlic Confit!
