And the Winner is.....

Mushroom & Hefeweizen-Glazed Potato Torte: This elegant torte is created by reducing a Hefeweizen style beer which transforms into a demi-glace as it bakes into the torte. The reduced beer adds an intense, umami richness to delicate layers of potatoes, mushrooms sautéed with shallots and thyme, and fresh ricotta cheese. The floral qualities of this beer marries well with these earthy vegetables. A sprinkling of Togarashi on the crispy potato topping adds a complex and bright finish.
