and the deliciousness experience goes on and on ! Can't go wrong with this ''boy''' any which way he's JUST DELICIOUS!

So we 'invented' another recipe ! Way to go CarmiKrawker/dodoJozzzzzzi team.....http://thesunnyrawkitchen.blogspot.com/

Durian and Coconut Cream Napoleon

'Phyllo' Pastry
We used the recipe from the Baklava on p. 60 in Matthew Kenney's Everyday Raw Desserts. It calls for cashews, macadamias, lemon juice, honey, water, vanilla, salt and flax meal.

Cut into pieces of about 4" x 2 1/2"

Durian Mousse
1 1/2 cups durian flesh
1/4 cup Irish moss paste*
1/4 cup agave nectar (or more, depending on how sweet your durian is)
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch salt
---
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1 tbs lecithin powder

Blend first set of ingredients until smooth in high-speed blender.

Add coconut oil and lecithin and blend again, just to incorporate.

Chill in the refrigerator to set.

To make Irish Moss Paste:
Blend 1.5 oz (or ½ cup packed) soaked Irish moss with 1 cup water in a high-speed blender until completely dissolved.

Coconut Cream
1 cup water
¾ cup young coconut meat
½ cup cashews, soaked
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons Irish moss paste (see recipe above)
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons raw agave nectar or honey
¼ cup melted coconut oil
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract or liquid vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Pinch salt

Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth and creamy.

Place in the refrigerator to set.

Assembly
Spread a generous layer of Durian Mousse on a piece of 'Phyllo' Pastry.

Top with a second piece of pastry.

Spread a generous layer of Coconut Cream, topped with a third piece of 'Phyllo'.

Decorate with Coconut Cream and Durian Mousse and, if desired, sprinkle with a mixture of ground gogi berries and dried coconut.

Enjoy immediately. ,,,,,, we tried making one and left it overnight to check the recipe.... did not work.... the stacks got moist..... so for serving...have everything ready and just before eating assamble... UYUUYUMMMMO's !

You have convinced me-certainly am not turned on by the thought of baked or crumbed penis or whatever.
Cannot remember where I read it, but apparently tigers love durian and wait till they drop so be careful if you are gathering any in the jungles.
I am not sure how I will go with durian, as I cannot handle the smell of thai coconuts-and hate the taste of the water. After reading how good they are for you I was so disappointed-my husband does well out of all this as he gets to eat them. Luckily I can use them in foods as long as the smell and taste are disguised.
I wonder why our brains decide we like or dislike a certain food?
Anyway have enjoyed reading your durian adventures Joz (hope I have your name right) and the other posts-has given me a good laugh.

So glad you enjoyed reading the '''durian''' adventures! It was fun!

I certainly am enjoying durian ! ..... wonder how I ever got to even try it; as before I would not try a banana then I would not try an avocado.... then living in Mexico for 4 years I got to experiment with all the fruits and love love Guava fresh off a tree ! then Pineapple... it also had a 'smell' ! lol

so now I got into '''bad stinky boy king of them all bad boy'''' and I'm already dreaming of another recipe and even moving to Singapore where I can get them every day???

I would say try a 1/2 recipe and invite a few friends so you all have a taste... so as not to 'waste' so much food.... and see if you actually would like it???? don't know what else to say.....It's: either you like it or don't... there is no inbetween..

Joz

OK-have durian-is sitting in the kitchen and now am wondering if I should put it in the back yard to ripen. It hasn't started smelling yet-am wondering if the smell will go through the house and be the type of smell we cannot get out??? (We are renting).
Yes a durian party sounds good Joz-would be a great workshop day learning about how to open them and what to do with them.Well I had better go to work now-shall check the other posts when I have more time..
PS I just went to stay with a friend who has international students boarding. One of the Chinese students was very suspicious about the white chocolate strawberry cheesecake but loved it when he tried it. He is coming over for lunch in a few weeks time. Had some interesting talks with him-he had not heard of the Tiamin Square(sorry about spelling?) "incident". They are not allowed to use google either. He said "we" (I take it meaning the govt.) have a problem with Tibet at the moment.
Well I said I didn't like to get into political debates-I guess there is a time to speak out and a time to stay silent.Makes one appreciate ones freedom of speech.
Take care and hope you are having a

Every year a few hundred thousand people gather in Chanthaburi, Thailand, to bask in the magnificence of the world’s best Durians. Competitions range from the largest Durian to the weirdest shaped to speed eating. And of course, the main event, Miss Durian World Beauty Pageant. I wonder if there’s a Durian speed eating competition tied into that… On top of the World Durian Festival, there is a whole calendar full of Durian Festivals. My dream is to one day become a Durian Groupie and go to every festival in a year.


Durian goes on and on and on. Yeah.
