Miami’s dining scene is no stranger to the occasional celebrity sighting. Here is a recipe from Executive Chef Erwin Mallet at Villa Azur, a French-Mediterranean spot known for its striking décor.
This Roasted Dates dish is a favorite of actor Darren Criss, the restaurant says.
Serving: 4 people
36 pitted dry dates
12 slices of Bayonne Prosciutto
4 ounces of Manchego cheese
Half a tablespoon of Honey
1 cup of Heavy cream
Melt half the Manchego cheese with the cream in a saucepan, salt and pepper, boil and then mix everything together in a blender.
Put aside in a cooler.
Stuff the dates with Manchego cheese: 2gr per date.
Wrap the dates 3 by 3 with one slice of Bayonne prosciutto.
Bake the dates in an oven at (400F) for 4 minutes, then top the dates with honey and re-bake for 1 minute.
Plate and serve with the dressing on the side.
