Dessert, though, was interesting :) I was planning to make a banana fondue recipe I found, but I think I must have given that cookbook to Butterfly. So I searched around a bit and somehow found this website with white chocolate wasabi fondue.
It was a lot of fun! Step one, reduce about a quart of sake down to a half-cup of wasabi syrup. Step two, make two tablespoons of wasabi paste, and mix into white chocolate. Serve quickly.
It had a surprisingly light wasabi flavor--just a little bit of it, and no burn. I messed up the recipe a bit and used too much cream and chocolate, so it should have been a leetle bit stronger, but overall, a success :)
I got bored and had a huge quantity of the sauce left over, so I reduced it down to caramel. I'm looking forward to trying that today!
