Throw back Thursday….Zac Young at the Bakery!

Let’s do a little throw back Thursday!  One of my favorite summer time desserts is something my friend Zac Young whips up – I am not sure what he calls it but I know it involves his DELICIOUS lemon meringue, he tops this yumminess off with his “Disco” Blueberries.  I thought on the eve of summer it might be nice to revisit how he makes them…

Our friend Zac Young (you may recognize him from the first season of Top Chef Just Desserts and of Unique Sweets) stopped by the bakery today to give us a tutorial on how he makes his famous “Disco Blueberries” that adorns his Lemon Meringue dessert.  He just started as the Pastry Chef in the David Burke Kitchen in the James Hotel here in Soho.  Definitely stop by for some delicious treats from one of our favorite pastry chefs.  Thanks for the visit!!!

1. You will need Blueberries, Luster Dust and edible Disco 2. Put blueberries in a big bowl 3. Spray with Luster Dust, move them around the bowl to make sure they are all covered 4. Sprinkle your edible Disco and toss around so they are evenly coated 5. Allow to dry on a parchment covered cookie sheet for a few minutes 6. VOILA! Disco covered blueberries make a sparkly finish to any delicious dessert!
