Butterscotch Banana Cream Pie
Just finished a photo shoot for a pie book, and stole a chance to take a phone pic with some professional lighting! Gosh, I wish all my pics could look this elegant and pretty. Anyway, for the book, I decided to go with a cream pie. Instead of piping or billowing a mound of chantilly atop the butterscotch pudding, I went quenelle happy and strategically placed different sized quenelles all over. Dotted with caramelized banan slices and micro lemon balm, it sort of looks like multiple sunrises among a hilly landscape. A passer-by even thought it looked like a basket of eggs.
