Ayane enjoys a career that spans a broad spectrum of musical personas. Winner of the Primrose International Viola Competition, her two additional awards at the competition defines her passion for music: the best chamber music and best commissioned work performances. With the Lincoln Trio we recorded the entire works of Turina with Ayane. Her wonderful musicianship and her great sense of humor made for a most memorable experience! Here Ayane shows her wonderful creativity in this next Episode of Fiddlers Favorites.
P.S.: A special treat in this very creative video is the background music, LIFT, performed by the Aizuri Quartet and written by Ayane’s boyfriend, as well as stop-motion appearances by a small character named "Eggsnail"!Paul Wiancko.
From Ayane: "Finding small-batch baking recipes has been super helpful for rationing flour and having a variety of treats for our tastebuds ??. This one is now a household favorite, with its rich eggy flavor, its flexibility in flour and milk options, and ability to pack in tons of fruit in every bite. The original recipe calls for plain flour and whole milk. I found a long lost bag of almond flour in the back of my pantry, so that with the oat milk made for some tasty, nutty flavored muffins! You can also try with different berries! These muffins are inspired and adapted from Hummingbird High as well as NYC's Levain Bakery (which is also doing nationwide shipping during this time if you need your giant gooey cookie fix!)

This was so much fun, Ayane.
I'm making them more before I log into 'school', so I can show them off to my students. It's just right for the overripe raspberries I picked and froze over summer and rediscovered in tiny heaps when I sorted pout the freezer a couple of weeks ago. Yum!
