Need Help with "Molecular" Desert

Awall25 | Jan 30, 2007 07:13 PM

Me and some friends are teaming up to make a special dinner and watch the finale of Top Chef.

I am making desert and need some help. My dish is an homage to Marcel, mainly just because I wanted an excuse to try and make a foam.

I am going to make Moto's Donut Soup and put an espresso foam on top. A play on coffee and doughnuts.

I am going to plate the soup in a bowl on a rectangular plate.

I need help figuring out what to do with the other half of the plate. I wanted to do a chocolate paint brush swipe and then put some carbonated strawberries over it. I was only doing the strawberries because I happened to see a recipe for them and my wife happened to have some leftover dry ice from work.

The dry ice has since disappeared, so I'm not sure what to do.

I'm really looking for anything that would pair well with coffee and dougnuts, but any idea would be very helpful.

Here are links for the Donut Soup and the Carbonated Strawberries, if anyone is interested.
