This is a particularly delicious seviche. Don't substitute bay scallops for the sea scallops; they are too sweet. A dry Gewürztraminer thoroughly chilled holds up to this dish. Like this recipe? Find more like it in one of Barbara Kafka's many excellent cookbooks.

This is delicious sorbet can be made without an ice-cream maker (though ice-cream makers turn out perfectly fine sorbets). You'll need to leave enough time for it to freeze, so start the process well in advance. This recipe is part of the Barbara Kafka Dessert Anthology.
