Recipe: Shortcake Biscuits with Rosé-Poached Rhubarb

Claudia Fleming’s Shortcake Biscuits with Rosé-Poached Rhubarb The secret ingredient in Claudia Fleming’s shortcakes? Hard-boiled egg yolks. “They provide richness and act as a tenderizer,” the JBF Award–winning pastry chef told us.

Fleming sandwiches hers around rosé-poached rhubarb and strawberry–white chocolate cream. Get the recipe here.

Recipe: Goat Cheese Panna Cotta with Grand Marnier-Soaked Strawberries

Alan Wong's Goat Cheese Panna Cotta If you’ve never made panna cotta, which is a low-maintenance but crowd-pleasing dessert, here’s a version from Hawaiian chef Alan Wong that will inspire you to whip out those ramekins and get to work. Chef Wong adds tangy chèvre to cut the creaminess, then brightens the dessert with Grand Marnier–soaked strawberries and a sprinkling of shiso, a Japanese member of the mint family. Feel free to play around with the accompaniments: goat’s milk caramel, fruit coulis, or wildflower honey would also be delicious. Get the recipe here.
