Chou Tropical

During last weekend’s French Gastronomy Day (Fête de la Gastronomie, September 22) at Dekalb Market in Brooklyn, Pistache participated in the French/No French Dinner held by Omnivore. http://www.omnivore.fr/
That Saturday, Pistache gave the finishing touch of dessert to the delicate, delicious dishes prepared by talented chefs Alexandre Couillon and Dominique Crenn.
We came up with a “chou tropical” for dessert: a chou stuffed with a pineapple/banana pastry cream, and a vanilla/lemon confit chantilly on top.
On the plate, a little compotée of pineapple roasted in punch coco (the beloved French-Caribbean apéritif of Martinique and Guadeloupe islands) completed our sweet tour to the Tropics.
