Newsflash: It’s strawberry season! To celebrate, we’re making plans with this recipe for sheet-pan strawberry shortcake with black pepper, whipped honey ricotta and togarashi, courtesy of fashion designer-turned-cook Peter Som. (If his name sounds familiar, it might be because he’s dressed the likes of Michelle Obama, Emma Watson and Amy Poehler. No big deal.)
By the way, how does one make the leap from fashion to food? Som says his curiosity for cooking originated from his Chinese heritage and his mom’s obsession with French food; he began cooking at home as an escape from the fast-paced world of fashion. And thank goodness for that, because we don’t know what we’d do without this easy, crowd-pleasing dessert.
Psst: The garnish calls for togarashi, a Japanese spice blend that’s toasty, spicy and sweet, and while it is totally optional, we think it’s the cherry on top.
