The following is a recipe from the feature, provided by Chef Fearing:
- 15 egg yolks
1 ¼ cups heavy cream
¾ cup sugar
1 vanilla bean
Salt to taste
2 bananas, sliced
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add ¼ inch water to the pan. Separately, heat the cream and vanilla bean in a medium saucepan over medium heat, to a steady simmer.
- Place a large stainless-steel mixing bowl in the pan with the water, creating a double boiler. Add the yolks and sugar, whisking continuously to a ribbon consistency, about 3 minutes. Turn up the heat for the cream and bring it to a boil. In a small stream, mix and temper the cream into the yolks, whisking continuously to combine and make the pudding.
- Remove the bowl from the double boiler and pour the pudding through a fine sieve. Transfer the pudding to a container and cool in the refrigerator or on an ice bath. Once cooled, cover the pudding. The pudding may be scooped as needed and will hold for 3 days.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine the bananas and the pudding, folding together gently. Scoop equal amounts of the pudding into 6 small glass serving bowls and serve.
