Mint Infused White Chocolate? (And Black Rice?)

BerkshireTsarina Jun 3, 2013 03:44 PM

Friends from across the country who cook like gourmet chefs came visiting and made a feast for us. Most of the courses I wouldn't even attempt, but they did make a mint-infused white chocolate sauce (?) that was poured into saucers, then studded with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. I'd tackle that one --- does anyone know how it's done? The sauce was a lovely pale green color. (No one goes into the kitchen while they cook, so I didn't see it in prep.)
Also --- they left a big batch of cooked black rice for us. Any interesting ideas on what to do with it?

    Guittard makes some delicious mint chips that taste very much of white chocolate. Wonder if they used those?

      Those sound good too --- but I know (evidence in fridge!) that they bought fresh mint, and the word infusion definitely came up.

      Sounds like this:

      There are different types of black rice - some are glutinous (sticky) while others aren't. Any idea which type you have?

        I found this recipe that is along the same lines as what you described.

        Could you ask your friends for the recipe?

          Thanks, Musie. The recipe sounds really good.
          This is embarrassing --- but I didn't want to sound too much like a dork, which is why I didn't ask them for the recipe.
          (They're the kind who can taste something and then recreate it. It's a good thing I love them a lot, or I would hate them. ;-)
