    Manami's Note:

    Morgan Freeman, Oscar Winner, was on the Oprah show and Executive Chef Conny Andersson, of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, shared his recipe; featured in "Morgan Freeman and Friends: Caribbean Cooking for a Cause". Cookbook is to benefit the island of Grenada, hit by hurricane Ivan, a couple of year's ago. They look scrumptious! Freezing of the ice cream varies with different manufacturer's, didn't include the cooling time of 8 hrs for the carpaccio and refrigerating the batter for at least 1 hour.

    VANILLA ICE CREAM

    VANILLA BEAN SIMPLE SYRUP

    PINEAPPLE CARPACCIO (Use 1/4 cup vanilla bean simple syrup)

    BANANA BEIGNETS

    Directions:

    1. 1
      TO MAKE VANILLA ICE CREAM:.
    2. 2
      Split the vanilla bean pods lengthwise and scrape out all the seeds. In a large saucepan, combine the milk and cream, add the seeds and pods, and bring to a slow boil over medium heat.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Pour in 1/2 the boiling milk mixture and combine; adding in other 1/2 after combined. Pour into pan and cook, stirring, over medium heat until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
    5. 5
      Remove from heat and immediately strain into another bowl. Place over a second large bowl filled with ice and let cool completely, stirring every 30 minutes. When cool, freeze in an ice cream maker according to the mfg's directions.
    6. 6
      TO MAKE VANILLA BEAN SIMPLE SYRUP:.
    7. 7
      Bring sugar, leftover vanilla bean pods and water to a boil in small saucepan. When sugar is dissolved, remove from heat. Remove vanilla bean pods. Cool syrup to room temperature.
    8. 8
      TO MAKE PINEAPPLE CARPACCIO:.
    9. 9
      Cut off the top of the pineapple and following the shape of the fruit, slice off the skin with a serrated knife, making sure to remove all the eyes. Slice the fruit into the thinnest possible rings.
    10. 10
      Place each slice on a sheet of plastic wrap, brush with the syrup, rub the brown sugar over the surface, and top with a second sheet of plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining slices, transfer to a rimmed baking sheet, and refrigerate overnight.
    11. 11
      TO MAKE BANANA BEIGNETS:.
    12. 12
      In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Add eggs and 1 cup water; whisk until a smooth paste forms. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
    13. 13
      In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
    14. 14
      In a deep fryer, heat the oil to 350ºF. Working in batches, dip the bananas in the chilled batter and coat completely. Slip them into the oil and fry for about 2 minutes or until golden brown.
    15. 15
      Transfer to paper towels to drain. Dust with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
    16. 16
      TO ASSEMBLE THE DISH:.
    17. 17
      Arrange equal portions of the carpaccio in an overlapping circle on a dessert plate. Lay two pieces of fried banana in the center, and top with one large scoop of vanilla ice cream. Drizzle with vanilla bean syrup.
