Think of food as art (NC) - Some artists like to express their passion in the form of panoramic landscapes. Others prefer great historical scenes. But for NewYork-based Nir Adar - chef, artist and food stylist — his subject of choice is food.
"Summer is my favourite time for entertaining," said Adar who has been working his magic for Häagen-Dazs since 1992. "It's perfect for using fresh in-season ingredients such as fruit and mint. A low-fat frozen yogourt like Dulce de Leche or Banana Strawberry Smoothie dotted with fresh berries makes a mouth-watering treat your guests can indulge in without worrying about their waistlines."
Nir emphasizes that your eye is visually seduced long before food reaches the taste buds, so party hosts should present creatively! "When I plan a party, I think pure, simple elegance," he said, "Fresh, natural ingredients make a beautiful presentation and taste great. Try a new recipe using the finest ice cream served in a martini glass or a contemporary Asian tea bowl to add a little flair. My little secret? Serve dessert first!"
In blender container, combine all ingredients; blend at high speed until smooth. Serve immediately. Makes 4 (1-1/4 cup) servings.
