my show is opening on friday! for those of you in the area, blue jay cafe,
919 divisadero from 7-9 pm. please come!

and now some recipes.
i apologize for being photoless.

san francisco haroset for passover:

10 asian pears
4 dried figs
1/4 cup pistachios, shelled, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup dried goji berries
16 oz pomegranate juice
cinnamon, agave, and salt to taste
fresh mint

chop everything coarsely (or use a food processor), add juice, figure out
how much salt, sugar and cinnamon tastes okay, let sit refrigerated
overnight, taste again before serving and adjust salt/sugar. serve alone,
with matzoh or crackers, with plain yogurt, or wrapped in dumpling
wrappers and fried!

fried dumplings:

store-bought dumpling/wonton wrappers
haroset filling
oil for frying (use a higher heat oil, like peanut, coconut, or canola)

i wrap my wontons like so: put water all around the edge of the wrapper,
place a little filling in the middle, fold in half and seal. fold in half again
the other way and stick only one edge, not both. when all are wrapped, you
can fry them in a little oil until golden brown.

banana filling:

a mushy banana
thinly sliced ginger
a little vanilla extract

these were delicious with a little bit of plain yogurt, and maple syrup if you're
feeling the sweet tooth.
