A blog is a diary, and I have been very bad at keeping it. Hence, this influx of posts to try to catch up on documenting my stuff. This candied yam dish is the last of my winter '11-'12 dishes, and it was just too pretty to let slide away unnoticed. I love the colors against the black plate, and it tastes pretty good too. Components include bruleed pucks of sweet potato gratin, toasted maple mallow, burnt milk ice cream, candied pecans, cranberry sauce and some fresh dill sprigs.
