DESSERT is the time when a Cook usually turns into Bang. Many final courses like cheesecake that take over a day to make, like a slow, patient seduction. There is nothing wrong with taking your time to holler at the moon so long as you do in fact holler. But we live in a culture that wants everything yesterday. In fairness to the instant gratification crowd, here’s an instant dessert that is healthy, tasty, and quick on the go. Do not fear the balsamic vinegar for it is your friend. The fusion of the powdered sugar, fructose from the berries and the vinegar is like some mystical alchemy that preps your tongue ready for more adventuresome travels. Be sure to hand-feed these to your date, thus fostering the intimacy you will no doubt exploit for your own perverted gains. I have made this outstanding standout for more dates than I can remember and not once have I been refused. Won’t you join our merry band of culinary pranksters?
Ingredients (serves 2):
1. 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar
2. 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
3. 1 package of fresh strawberries
4. ½ a lemon worth of juice
Cut the strawberries into thin slices, removing the stems. Squeeze the lemon juice over the strawberries followed by the balsamic vinegar and the powdered sugar. Serve this simple satisfaction on a platter and feed them to your lover(s).
