It is still very much summer in Northern California and so if you are looking to beat the heat like us, homemade ice cream is ALWAYS a great idea! Kulfi, originating from South Asia, is a creamier and denser version of ice cream made by boiling and reducing milk in volume. And of course, since fusion cooking is my favorite, I have incorporated Matcha (ground green tea leaf powder) to blend two beautiful historic cuisines. Enjoy!
When I started Furbaby and Foodie, I had no idea I would start to enjoy the intricacies of baking and creating fusion desserts. Neal and I have primarily spent our time in the kitchen cooking dinners and sometimes experimenting with craft cocktails. I suppose when you practice a skill everyday, new doors open up for you and sometimes even new passions.
This post was inspired by an episode of Chef's Table featuring Christina Tosi, founder of Milk Bar. The cinematic storytelling combined with Christina's background swayed me beyond words and I instantly thought Panna Cotta. For those of you that haven't viewed this episode, Christina Tosi is known for starting the cereal flavored milk ice cream craze that can now be found in chains all over the country. My favorite cereal growing up was Cinnamon Toast Crunch and our favorite family dessert was Apple Pie with Ice Cream....eventually leading to this recipe!
With our favorite cookie being the Oreo, it was a must for me to create a unique recipe involving it! I opted for a spin on the traditional cheesecake incorporating goat cheese as well as cream cheese and the lighter greek yogurt alternative. The combination is a perfect amount of sweetness meaning you can skip the glass of water after....if desserts tend to have that effect on you!
First things first, we are not bakers! Neal and I typically taste as we cook and like to modify ingredients during the process. There is a certain precision around baking that makes it terrifying but also very admirable.
