As we are only two days away from Eid al-fitr, many of us are already looking forward to spending quality time with the family. Aside from the warmth and love of our extended kin, Eid is also the time when we taste some of our most favourite foods, especially desserts. After a month of fasting, many of you will be craving yummy treats.

We caught up with Indonesia’s veteran Pastry Chef Dedy Sutan at COMO Uma Canggu and asked him to share his favourite recipe, which is perfect to savour during Eid. When asked, Chef Dedy quickly agreed to share his special Verrine with Keffir Lime Namelaka (“creamy texture” in Japanese) with cashew nuts and pineapple compote. Not only is this verrine delicious, it’s also healthy and easy to make.
