"It's the little touches that separate you from other places," says executive chef Chris Jaeckle, referring to the extra effort and thought put into the dishes that he serves at Ai Fiori. While at home, we are not able to create meals with such precision and technical know-how, chef Jaeckle has generously adapted the recipe for Ippoglosso — halibut, morels, asparagus, hollandaise, and foie gras — for us to replicate his masterpiece at home (well, at least the best we can).We were able to visit chef in the kitchen to watch him compose the dish from start to finish. If you want to see how it's done, check out the slideshow below for extra tips and advice.How did this intricate and lovely spring dish come about? In two ways really. First, executive chef Chris Jaeckle and chef/owner Michael White were brainstorming one day about how to use the Hold-O-Mat machine that they have and playing around with the idea of doing more with fish. Chef Jaeckle explains that compared to White’s other restaurants, Ai Fiori is more feminine in its approach to food whereas his other restaurants are more masculine with a focus on searing and meats. Ai Fiori has more of a Provencal influence that focuses on the region's cuisine and fish is a better fit for that type of food. As the restaurant is based in the Northeast, halibut, asparagus, and morels are in season during the spring, so it seemed natural that this dish would come together with all of these components and with the method used. —Yasmin FahrClick here to see the D.I.Y.

In her breathlessly anticipated new cookbook, Organs for Vegans, actress and Spanish food expert Gwyneth Paltrow offers this difficult-to-make and frankly not very tasty mélange of vegetable innards. "People are surprised when they learn that non-meat offal even exists," says the lithe blonde, who writes her own cookbooks. "But think about it: cabbage has heads, artichokes have hearts, so why shouldn't wheatgrass have a liver?" In addition to this unusual "sweetbread" and "liver" preparation, Paltrow offers recipes for such unexpected delights as Parsnip Spleen Croquettes, Kohlrabi Jowl Sliders with Chia Mayonnaise, and, for readers with a sweet tooth, an agave-syrup-sweetened Loquat Kidney Upside-Down Cake.
How to make an Acai Bowl + 8 Insanely Creative Recipes!
After contacting Gisele, my favourite person from Brazil, the home of the Acai Berry, I’m happy to say I now can teach you how to make an acai bowl – original style.
I bet not even the hippest California Sunshine Breakfast House can serve any better. Açaí na tigela, man!
But first let’s answer a couple of important questions on acai berries and then dive into how to make a proper acai bowl.
The Ultimate Acai Bowl Recipe With Powder
Now, before we get stuck into the recipe, why is this superfood acai bowl recipe with powder dah ULTIMATE? Aside from being perfected over several years of experimentation in the lab (my kitchen) and tried and tested by family and friends galore, it’s also got some snazzy health thangs going on…
For one, if you go with my preferred liquid mixer, kefir, you are getting the great combo of gut-loving probiotics and protein. Given the traditional acai bowl is quite high in sugar due to all the fruit (not good), I’ve balanced this out with healthy protein sources that don’t mess with the flavour profile. Cinnamon is also a known blood sugar regulator, and chia seeds add some additional protein, along with healthy fats.
Now that you know why this acai bowl recipe is dah greatest, let’s proceed…
Is acai healthy?
Yes! They’re prized for their high concentration of antioxidants, rivaling the value of blueberries by two-fold. Acai contains plant sterols (linked to lowering cholesterol), amino acids, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, omega 3’s, 6’s and 9’s for heart and brain health.
It’s also naturally low in sugar and contains a variety of vitamins and minerals. Acai is exceptionally high in ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value.
How To Make an Acai Bowl at Home:
- I use a frozen acai packet. These are easy to purchase at any health food shop, many grocery stores, or Amazon.
- The classic acai bowl blends a packet of acai, bananas and agave. They are blended together and there you have the most delicious bowl of tastiness. Again, this is the classic acai bowl, from here the possibilities become endless of what you want to add. I love adding dates to the mixture. This is an excellent starting point.
- Top with fresh fruit, chia seeds and unsweetened coconut flakes.
The topping are endless to a Classic Acai Bowls! I use seasonal berries, kiwi, banana, etc! I love adding in chia seeds, shredded coconut and granola. My Cherry Coconut Granola is a personal favorite to add into my acai bowls! I hope you enjoy this recipe and make this soon because it is delicious!
I hope you enjoyed learning How To Make A Classic Acai Bowl and will be making many on your own!

What is an Acai Bowl?
Acai bowls have become popular over recent years, as they are a delicious way to incorporate this nutrient dense food into your everyday life.
Essentially, an acai bowl is made with an acai smoothie-like base with an ice-cream like consistency, and it’s topped with a variety of different ingredients. You can enjoy it with a spoon, and clean-up is a breeze since everything fits in one bowl.
The fun part about acai bowls is that you can literally customize it to your liking with your favorite toppings. There are so many different topping options that pair well with the acai smoothie base - you just can’t go wrong.
Some favorite acai toppings options include:
Chia, hemp seeds, or flaxseeds
Sunflower seeds or pepitas
Fresh fruit, such as sliced bananas or berries
Chocolate chips or cocoa nibs
If you’re feeding a crowd, simply put out your toppings options on a table, and let your guests (or kids!) assemble and create their own acai bowls with their toppings of choice!
