Author Notes

When I watch cooking shows with the best chefs and all their creative ideas, I get inspired to try some new things. I have seen sushi rolls made with vegetables and fruits but the technique for rolling looked to me complicated.
After doing some thinking, I decided to make Sashimi with fruit for dessert.
I adjusted a recipe for Rice Pudding and made a dipping sauce.
My family played the role of judges and the dish got high marks.
Next time I will try to use mango or figs.
