Grilled Grapefruit Juice for Roasted Grapefruit Gelee

I've always been a huge fan of grilling citrus and then juicing to add more depth to a dish.  Here I've grilled some grapefruits and zested the outer skin.  I'm cooking the juice down with red wine, herbs, sugar, lime juice, and salt.  I will make the gelee by adding some agar agar and allowing the mixture to set in the cooler.  I will post the dish later once I get it ready for service tonight.

Tableside Smore for Dessert Special Tonight

I had dinner at Alinea a few years ago and never forgot the signatue dessert they prepare on your table as the grand finale to your experience. I thought that we could do a simpler version of this concept by simply plating the desserts in front of the guest instead of in the kitchen. We shall see how this goes tonight.....More to follow

Rosemary Marshmallow, Three Chocolates Fondue, Graham Cracker Ice cream and Streusel, Chocolate Bark, Turkey Figs, Strawberries
