Chocolate Raspberry Trifles: Valentines Dessert | Maison Cupcake

Spotting romantic gestures from my husband requires the expert eye that comes after almost 14 years of being together. I knew to expect this from our first Valentines night out together. Trudging around Shepherds Bush, totally unprepared, from restaurant to restaurant hunting for a table, we ended up in the usual curry house. Apart from one equally unromantic tryst, which believe me, does so not count, in the Trocadero the previous year, Id never had anyone to share Valentines day with so I didnt know about restaurants being booked up, so I just put it down to the 14th falling on a Friday that year. After that we got better at booking restaurants. Until the year we moved to our current home when we were trying to save money, we always went out somewhere to eat. Never anywher

Drink in Art: Blue Bottle's Glittery Ice Cream Float at SFMOMA - San Francisco - Restaurants and Dining

Anna RothBlue Bottle at SFMOMA elevates desserts to works of art by taking inspiration from the museum's exhibits and permanent collection (we wrote about the Mondrain cake and other treats back in 2009). For the next few months they're serving a fun Sherman Ice Cream Float topped with edible "disco glitter" ($6) inspired by a photograph in the new Cindy Sherman show. Untitled No. 415 is a portrait of a clown wearing a floral-printed jacket, red pants, and a glittery silver bowler hat, clutching a bottle of light pink soda. Blue Bottle's pastry team set out to create a carnivalesque dessert that evoked the photograph in both taste and appearance. The float starts with a scoop each of Humphry Slocombe vanilla ice cream and raspberry sorbet to represent the clown's white makeup and maroon pa

Yes, I want to see the dessert menu!: Chocolate and Raspberry Tarts

I thought I'd start with something indulgent. These tarts are brilliantly rich and bittersweet. Unfortunately I made them before raspberries were in season, so used frozen berries. I would definately recommend using fresh berries when available, as the chocolate is very bitter, and the fresh berries stop this from being overbearing. Sweet Shortcrust Pastry 1 cup plain flour 1/8 cup icing sugar a pinch of salt 90g unsalted butter Place flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add butter and rub through with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add 3 tablespoons of cold water and cut with a knife until the dough comes together in a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Divide pastry into 4 portions and roll each piece out on a lightly floured surface until 3mm

Pancake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pancake Blueberry pancakes (American) Details TypeCake Main ingredient(s)Batter "Griddle cake" redirects here. For the Irish style bread, see Soda bread. A pancake is a thin, flat, round cake prepared from a batter, and cooked on a hot griddle or frying pan. Most pancakes are quick breads, which use a quick leavening agent such as baking powder, while some use a yeast-raised or fermented batter. Typically, pancakes are cooked one side on a griddle and flipped partway through to cook the other side. Depending on the region, pancakes may be served at any time of day, with a variety of toppings or fillings including jam, chocolate chips, fruit, syrup or meat. Archaeological evidence suggests that varieties of pancakes are probably the earliest and most widespread types of cereal food eaten in

Tracey's Culinary Adventures: June 2010

This week's Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe was selected by Dawn of Growing Up (And Having Fun) After 40: pistachio linzer thumbprints! Unfortunately, something came up and Dawn wasn't able to bake along this week so I was asked to host and was happy to help out. I was actually contemplating skipping this week as I am not a pistachio person so this was just the incentive I needed to give these cookies a go and then hand them off to someone who'd enjoy them. The first challenge with this recipe was tracking down the unsalted pistachios called for. As someone who has never purchased pistachios, I had no idea it was going to be so challenging to find them! I checked 5 or 6 stores, each time finding another variation on roasted, salted pistachios, before giving up and deciding that it just wasn't

Raspberry and white chocolate go so well together and to serve it in a shot glass just elevates it to something special. Shot glass desserts are kind of my new obsession lately.

New House: Valentine's Dessert - Chocolate Raspberry Torte

Every once in a while I like to make a showstopping dessert. This Saturday was just one of those occasions as we hosted a lunch for some friends from my husband's school days. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it was time for something chocolate. Something beautiful. Something decadent. And this chocolate raspberry torte filled with whipped ganache, covered in rich thick ganache and topped with chocolate ribbon curls and fresh raspberries was exactly what I was looking for. This looks like a long recipe. Don't be discouraged because it's actually quite easy and so worth it in the long run. It starts with a basic chocolate cake.
