Made a visit to Baia Pasta while in Oakland. Got to see chef YJ and some fresh Baia Pasta. What a pleasant surprise! Always so nice to see a familiar face and remember where I come from in the culinary world. I will forever cherish the moments I’ve had at ICC and carry them with me throughout my career. #baiapasta #organic #cheflife #thebay #eastbay #freshpasta

These are the original Sabio ribs. They come with cabbage,  3 house made Korean pickles and Jason’s secret sweet and spicy sauce.

This is from a couple of weeks ago but I made a copycat of our ribs at Sabio bcuz they’re so amazing and I couldn’t help it #sabio #sabioonmain #koreansweetandspicyribs #inlove #sabioforlife #bestribs #pork #cheflife
So it’s almost 4 am and I’m almost done eating this tart I just made. So lately I’ve been watching this British baking show and it’s inspired me a lot and just given me a lot of ideas. I don’t know a lot about pastry or bread and I wanna get better so I’m just always learning new things by watching this show. 
So this is a lemon curd poached Asian pear tart. The dough is a pate brisee. Which is a flakey savory dough but u can use it for sweet pastry obviously. The custard is just flavored with lemon zest and juice. The Asian pears are poached in a sweet white wine with some star anise, all spice, cinnamon, and sugar obviously. The canelle is a whipped cream flavored with vanilla Greek yogurt, mint, powdered sugar, lemon juice and orange extract. And lastly the candied lemon zest is homemade as well. 
So yeah this recipe is something that I just put together. If anyone wants this actual recipe dm me. #ilovepastry #chef
