What could be better than getting your Club Sandwich fix immediately? Getting it to go!
Ube (“oo-be”), made from purple yam, is a popular ingredient in Filipino and Thai baking – the ube cake is the traditional birthday cake of the Philippines! The purple yam is dried, dehydrated and pulverized, and the resulting ube powder can be reconstituted with water, cream, or milk to add a mauve hue to cake batters and frosting, or creamed with sugar to make jam. It lends a starchy sweetness similar to that of a sweet potato or squash and provides a natural alternative to food colouring… if you’re into that sort of thing.
If you spotted them, the fractal Romanesco cauliflower, spherical green kohlrabi and Enoki mushroom-and-diamond bouquet added a The Food Is Out There vibe to the table!
Watch for another round of 101 Markets on Sunday, December 16 at 3030 Dundas West – Club Sandwich will introduce another original item sure to be a sweet treat for the holidays.
