We had dinner with some friends tonight and the dessert course was a "Chopped" type challenge. Myself and a guest were given 4 mystery ingredients that had to be used in the dessert:
I made a sauté of the apples and mushrooms (salt and pepper), made crepes seasoned with some smoked brown sugar, folded the filling in the crepes.
Made a caramel but when it was in the white stage, candied a couple of jicama sticks for next to the crepe. When the caramel was amber, added some cream, folded in some of the rice and some finely diced apple-date bars for texture. Spooned the caramel over the crepes.
Was ok, considering the bizarre ingredients and I won the challenge. The apples softened the mushroom taste to a decent degree.
Any other ideas for these ingredients in a dessert or improvements on my idea?
