Sweets in general are not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of cooking outdoors. But cake chef Carissa Jones thinks fried sweets are a beautiful thing, especially in Sacramento’s bright summer. “The last thing you want to do in the summer is warm up,” she says. So after finishing her main course, Jones used the remaining heat to bake a pound cake. She says it is a great way to sweeten sugar and add flavor.
Of course, the most famous is the “fire” plate, which shows a piece of fried dessert, fried marshmallows and a slice of chocolate between two graham crackers. At higher altitudes, Jones makes marshmallows from the beginning (she says, “They beat pants from any store,”), then fried marshmallo pana kota with gram stewel and chocolate gange. “It’s all but unexpected,” said Jones, who recently left the restaurant industry to teach cooking at the Sacramento County Youth Hall of Fame.
She bears fruit for easy preparation. “Roasted fruit at the end of the meal satisfies the craving for a sweet bite, and is very quick and tasty,” she explains. Figs and pears are good candidates for Greece. “Many people think of pears as the fruit of the fall, but the Cortland Pearl show is in July. “It’s a beautiful, bright, beautiful pearl,” says Jones. For sliced first course or dessert, you can toss half of fried pear with sliced blue cheese and one bee honey.
But your favorite summer fruits to bake are stone fruits such as peach, plum and apricot. To accompany the fruit, she offers vanilla ice cream “a recipe that will not fail.” If you want to be really beautiful, try pouring the sweetened milk into your meal with your favorite breakfast cereal. Cap’n Crunch, anyone?
