Rhubarb + strawberries

Strawberries plucked at the height of their ripeness and sliced to show their beautiful internal skeletal pattern; tart rhubarb stalks, sliced into ruby mezzalunas and sweetened in a thick sugar syrup; crème anglaise speckled with vanilla beans; thick balsamic vinegar; and pink peppercorns all made for a really exciting flavor combination. Sure, rhubarb and strawberries are classic, but I wanted to rethink the combo a little bit. Jasmine blossoms dance merrily among the scarlet gems in this, my ode to summer.
