SE HAWTHORNE—Noma pastry chef Rosio Sanchez stopped into the Castagna kitchen for a one-off collaborative dinner on Saturday evening, and the Oregonian grabs a food-porny slideshow of Sanchez's desserts and "snacks." Among them: an insane-looking dish named "Bitters ice cream, Sorrel." [OregonLive]
