In a word: refreshing! This dessert recipe comes from chefs Moriah Robison and Rayne Frey of Tabu Grill in Laguna Beach.


For curd: Whip sugar, lemon juice and eggs over a double boiler until thick and frothy. Whip butter in a mixing bowl. Slowly whisk lemon mixture into butter until incorporated. Chill for 3 to 4 hours.

For sorbet: Place all ingredients in a saucepot and
bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until rhubarb is soft, about 4 minutes. Blend and strain. Let chill for several hours, then process in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

To serve: Place a scoop of lemon curd on a plate, top with a scoop of sorbet and finish with chocolate shavings and a sprig of mint.
