When it comes to impressing your significant other’s parents, it’s best to have a plan. You want something you can execute easily while you don the many hats that come with the territory. The last thing you want to do is botch the crème brûlée because you are too busy fixing drinks and discussing your “five-year plan.”
Thankfully, the folks at Ghetto Gastro already have a game plan for you should the in-laws come knocking. The name of the game is fruit toast, and it’s as simple as it is delicious. While not reinventing the wheel, Chef P truly does do the most with a piece of toast, incorporating almond butter, mission figs, Adriatic figs, golden raspberries, red raspberries, red currants, coconut flakes, and lime zest, but the ingredients can vary. The main premise is using fruits that are in season, and assembling the dish in an eye-popping fashion.
As Chef P notes, these are “gifts from nature,” so let the gifts speak for themselves and you’ll be sure to save some time and frustration. After all, you’ll want as much reserve energy as possible when the in-laws bring up that age old "kid" question.
