Unusual flavor combinations - right up my alley,
This review is from: The Sugar Cube: 50 Deliciously Twisted Treats from the Sweetest Little Food Cart on the Planet (Hardcover)
I live in Portland, OR but I have yet to taste Kir's tasty treats at her Sugar Cube cart. I have heard many good things about them though, and the cart is on my places-to-eat-at-soon list!
I flipped through this book at Costco, and I knew I had to buy it. Majority of the recipes are very unique; she has a lot of the salty-sweet flavor combos throughout the book which I love!
It's a strawberry season here in Oregon. I saw her recipe for Badonkadonk Shortcake, and that was all I needed... 2 pints of Hood strawberries, a pint of thick local Jersey-cow cream and a bunch of basil later, we were in heaven. It's was the best shortcake I've ever eaten/made (see my photo in the images). The basil syrup just put it over the top! And Kir's suggestion to use the leftover basil syrup for Watermelon-Basil Margaritas was a great idea!
Next on my list are the Curried Carrot Cupcakes, the Roasted Banana Ice Cream and/or one of her famous Panna Cottas.
I highly recommend this book to anyone!

This looks AMAZING! Just a heads up, there is a recipe error on page 101 for the Toasted Coconut Panna Cotta. It's 3c coconut milk and 1c heavy cream (NOT 4c heavy cream). Enjoy!

I haven't bought the book yet, so if I forget and don't update that page will the recipe still come out? Just not as coconutty?
