Why I Love This Recipe

The sweet crisp of the filo cracker, the bite of the wasabi caviar, the savory delight of the onion confit is memorable. This is a sure winner and a very unique recipe. Make your own mayonnaise well in advance. It will last weeks in the refrigerator. That is if you don’t use it before. The caramelized filo’s stay fresh in the freezer once made. They are then ready to use whenever you need them.
