Send them my way and I’ll begin their re-education and self-transformation.  “Gadget” is the term I use to refer to a tasty and easy whole food snacking creation. “Gadgets” are one of the ways I introduce newbies to the world of live foods.

Mousse on the Loose – Avo Chocolate Mousse

Julian's Ormond Beach Sign
Vintage Kitsch

I had quite a wild weekend of food preparation and fun. Actually things started rocking for me on Friday when I drove down to Ormond Beach, FL for an Art Army meetup event at Julian’s Landmark Restaurant. Let me say first off, a big thank you to Keith for driving down with me and being my “most humble assistant”… best assistant ever! For those of you that have been to Julian’s you’ll understand what I mean when I say that the place is a surreal experience. Julian’s exists in a wormhole that keeps it suspended in the Tiki Bar Rat Pack Era. The decor of Julian’s is authentic, it’s gotta be because who in their right mind would replicate it. Don’t get me wrong, kitsch is cool, the  panoramic 30 foot wide Hawaiian Luau mural is priceless. The mural alone was worth the drive.

Our task, Keith and I, was to rock out a raw buffet for the Art Army event that kicked off at 8pm that evening. The menu that was planned was Pad Thai noodles made from zucchini, yellow squash and carrot topped with an yummy-liscious almond miso sauce. We also prepared walnut pecan pesto stuffed bell peppers, mixed green salad and a mack’in bowl of avocado chocolate mousse.

I’ll be posting video from the festivities, but first I’d like to share an avo-chocolate mousse video I recorded this summer. Enjoy!
