DATES SWISS ROLL

Posted on

INGREDIENTS
250 gms dates (Khajoor)
1 cup desiccated coconut
100 gm marie biscuit
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup nuts (I used green pistachio, almonds, cashew-nuts)
1/2 cup condensed milk


METHOD
In a blender, blend dates to make smooth paste. There should not be any lumps. Use little water if required to make paste. (I used 1 tbsp water).

Take out the paste in bowl, add coconut powder. Combine it together to make non-sticky dough.

For Biscuit dough
Grind marie biscuit to make smooth and fine powder. Add cocoa powder. Add roughly chopped nuts. Don’t make powder of nuts. Add condensed milk to make dough.

First take dates dough and roll it with the help of rolling pin using parchment paper.

Now roll biscuit dough. Gently lift biscuit roll and keep on top of the dates roll. Now roll both together.

Cover the dough with cling film and keep the dough in freezer for 30 minutes.

Take out from freezer after 30 minutes and slice it.

Serve and store rest in fridge.

You can try simple recipe of dates and nuts roll.

TASTE BOTH THE DOUGHS BEFORE ROLLING, IF REQUIRED ADD POWDERED SUGAR. ( I DIDN’T ADD SUGAR).

IF YOU DON’T HAVE PARCHMENT PAPER. SIMPLY DUST YOUR ROLLING PIN WITH COCOA POWDER FOR BISCUIT DOUGH AND COCONUT POWDER FOR DATES DOUGH RESPECTIVELY.

Highlands Bar & Grill in Birmingham was named America’s most Outstanding Restaurant at the James Beard Foundation Awards in Chicago on Monday night. Highlands pastry chef Dolester Miles was also named best in the country, making the restaurant the runaway winner at the awards. A panel of chefs, restaurateurs, and food journalists gave chef and owner Frank Stitt’s modern Southern restaurant the honors. The other big winner of the night was Seattle’s Edouardo Jordan, whose JuneBaby was named best new restaurant in America; he was also named Best Chef Northwest for his restaurant, Salare. “People always talk about Portland [Oregon] as the Pacific Northwest restaurant city,” said Jordan. “But they’re like the cool kid with a new name every season. Seattle is showing we are an ongoing force.” He doesn’t credit the rise of Amazon.com Inc. for his restaurants’s successes, although owner Jeff Bezos has dined at Salare. “Seattle has always had big companies—Boeing, Microsoft. They come in and eat, but it’s the people in the city who are making it happen. They’re more engaged than anyone gives them credit for.” The James Beard Foundation Awards recognize restaurants, wine programs, chefs, designers, restaurateurs, cookbook authors, and journalists from around the country. The awards, established in 1990, have recognized industry leaders such as Union Square Hospitality Group’s Danny Meyer and Daniel Humm and Will Guidara of Eleven Madison Park. While it may not have been a good year for such famed restaurant cities as New York and San Francisco (which won only two chef and beverage awards, including Best Service at Zuni, and the Best Chef West winner Dominique Crenn), it was a very good year for women. Gabrielle Hamilton of Prune in New York was named Outstanding Chef in the U.S, and Missy Robbins of Lilia in Brooklyn was named Best Chef New York. Forty percent of this year’s nominees were female. Women won many of the major awards, including Caroline Styne, who was named Outstanding Restaurateur for Lucques Group in Los Angeles. Forty percent of the winners of the regional chef awards were women; last year, that number was 30 percent. For the first time, voters were encouraged to consider qualities beyond food, wine, and ambiance, including respect and integrity. This follows accusations of sexual harassment against such past Beard winners as Mario Batali and John Besh.
