Peanut Butter Bliss
There's this fabulous special dessert in Morgan's Restaurant this week:
Yes, this is how I found out about it as well. This is not how I like to find out about new amazing yummy desserts. When I asked one of the two lucky recipients of what graced this plate that I missed, I was told it was "incredible". I bet you want to know what it was.
"Peanut Butter Semifreddo with Chocolate Sorbet with Peanut Brittle Dust"
Sounds delicious, doesn't it? Well, it was.
I was fortunate enough to try it myself, thank you Brandon! (Forgive the melting sorbet - I had to get the camera out and snap a photo). The Semifreddo was a first for me, and honestly a name I had never heard before. (Who would have thought tasting this dessert would become an educational experience?) Semifreddo is a class of semi-frozen desserts - this peanut butter one was like half mousse, half ice cream - so delicious. That peanut buttery bite teamed with the freshly made chocolate sorbet and a bit of the peanut brittle - well the flavors combined were just fabulous, as you probably can imagine. My plate looked just like the top photo in a matter of moments. You've got to try this one.
