I have a Dessert Dilemma. A question that is often presented to me as a pastry chef is:
“If you could choose only one dessert, what would it be?”
Have you given much thought to this? Depending on the situation, circumstances, and the environment at the time, I have a list of answers ready (actually, I have a few favourites!). My decision would have to be based on what I enjoy making as much as I enjoy eating (well, actually, I have a few of those favourites, too!)
In the Urbnspice kitchen, much testing, tasting and writing have been accomplished regarding my Chocolate Desserts Cookbook Series. During the testing process, I invite friends and friends of friends that wish to be a part of the tasting panel, and we all have a great time pondering all things chocolate. Their feedback is important to me in the overall process of gathering the best of the best for my books.
When I start the recipe-writing process, I routinely start with CHEF TALK to introduce and discuss each recipe. The feedback that I received for one particular chocolate tasting item was conclusive. If I wrote all of the comments that I received for The Quadruple Chocolate Brownie, I would not actually have room for the recipe on my page – it really is that good! The photo itself looks so luscious and rich and we could literally eat it off the page!
So, my definitive answer, my dear readers, is this:
“If I could choose only one dessert,
it would be a 3 x 3 inch square of Quadruple Chocolate Brownie,
slightly cooler than room temperature, but not cold.
I would accompany it with a cold glass of milk.
I would eat it slowly and savour its richness, its dense fudgy texture
and the unmistakable flavour that comes with using four very good quality chocolates.”
