I devour recipe videos, articles and blogs on food, and food shows on a regular basis, and my inspiration to cook comes from all of this. Recently, a leading food magazine in the UAE organised a competition on apples, and I knew this was my opportunity to try and make something unique.
The recipe for this dish is a combination of ‘Tasty’ videos and MasterChef Australia, which has been inspiring me ever since its first season. So many of my skills, or attention to detail in cooking has come from watching the Masterclasses in the first few seasons. The last two seasons of the show have been focusing a lot on parfaits – the French ice cream like dessert. So, when it came to this competition with Bicolored Apples, I was interested to see how I could pair a parfait and apple.
This dessert is a classic hot-cold dessert – hot, baked apples with a crumble, served with a cold, creamy salted caramel parfait. To add a twist, I crisped up the apple peels and used rosemary in it as well as in the crumble. It is simple and a delight to eat for some warmth and comfort.
