The Next New Big Dessert Trend

I saw this article in the “Orlando Weekly” paper and it sparked my interest. I thought I would share a small piece of what I read with my fellow foodies. It;s not Italian ice, it’s not a Hawaiian shaved ice and it’s definitely not a sno-cone. Shaved snow is made from giant blocks of flavored frozen milky ice, heaved onto a rotating spit and shaved into gossamer-thin layers. The end product looks almost like frozen cotton candy; the soft ribbons are both creamy and icy, with a lightness that is ideal in steamy weather. Covered with all sorts of sweet toppings, it makes for a summer treat that will cool you down without weighing you down.
Bigger cities have been touting shaved snow as the next dessert trend – on a level with frozen yogurt or cupcakes – for the last few years, with purveyors like Snow and Tell and Flurries popping up. In Orlando, it’s still centered in the Asian communities, but luckily, we’re rich in Asian restaurants. Here is a location that will shave you some:




Bubbles & Ice
813 N. Mills Ave., 407-895-8833,
Shaved snow fits right into their mostly-chilly dessert list, and this is the only spot we know of that flavors and freezes their own ice blocks.

Greek Fusilli Salad

2014-07-24 16.59.32

Having an English mother and an Italian grandmother, the culinary worlds just seem to shine through in many of my dishes. La Molisana pasta, which is made from 100% pure Durum Wheat Semolina, is the star ingredient in this salad. All you need for this salad is 1 package of Fusilli pasta, or your favorite short cut pasta, 1 pound. First cook the pasta then drain, rinse, and cool.  Then add 1 pound of Genoa Salami diced into 1/2 inch chunks, 1/2 a cup of diced roasted red peppers, 1/2 of a diced red onion, 8 ounces of good Feta cheese cut into 1/2 inch chunks, 1 pint of grape tomatoes, 1 yellow bell pepper diced into 1/2 in chunks, 1 thawed frozen package of artichoke hearts cut into 1/2 inch dice, 1-1/2 tablespoons of dried oregano, 1 tablespoon of Kosher salt, 1 teaspoon of black pepper, and finally 1/2 a cup of the best and fruitiest, E.V.O.O that you have. Toss this all together and your Greek Fusilli Salad is complete.
