The Dubai Summer is here (yikes!) , which means we’re on the look out for refreshing fruits of the season. Ricotta is one of our favorite cheeses, and we whipped it with lemon zest, vanilla bean paste and honey for a dessert-like spread that reminds us of delicious cannoli filling. Spread it generously on our organic sourdough batard and top with juicy nectarines and plump raspberries for a fresh, vibrant toast that will have you dreaming of summer holidays in ten minutes flat.
