Wasabi and Pastry???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, I'm trying to make a wasabi flavored filling that I can stuff inside dates, then roll the date like a cigar, then dip it the date in tempered chocolate. I would imagine this wasabi filling would be a bit on the confectionary side that can be used for pastries and sweets. Any ideas?

I've made something similar with Wasabi filled dates wrapped in bacon and grilled.


Since you are dipping them in chocolate, and they are in and of themselves sweet, I don't think your filling needs be as well.

The first thing that comes to mind is simply a paste made from water and the powder. If you wish, you could add honey for sweetness.

A Wasabi buttercream would also lend itself to what you are doing.

Excellent! I figured that much but thank you for confirming it. Also, thank you for beating me with pairing dates and wasabi =) how did they turn out?

Delicious.....but be warned.........only a small amount is needed to get the desired effect. I used a small pea sized dollop. The mixture of sweet, salty, and hot should compliment each other. You don't want the Wasabi to take away from that.

After I stuff the date with wasabi, and after I cover it with tempered chocolate, what do you suppose I can garnish it with that wont be a hassle when I produce mass quantities? Also if I decide to stack them on top of eachother in a tray.
