These are the desserts on our menu and they are all heavenly! My job in the kitchen is to plate them as they're ordered and let me tell you--it's hard to leave them alone! Chef plated up one of each to show us how and for the class to taste. I don't know their exact names as we hadn't printed up a dessert menu yet. Everything was made by our students except the chocolate cigarettes.
This is a pineapple/carrot upside down cake. It's a grilled pineapple slice atop a layer of carrot cake and topped with mascarpone ice cream and pineapple sauce. YUM!
This is Frangelico crème brûlée. There are toasted hazelnuts under that sprig of mint.
This is a chocolate trio with a chocolate madeleine, chocolate chocolate chunk ice cream, and a slice of flourless chocolate torte, plus cherry compote.
This is neopolitan ice cream--strawberry, chocolate, and mascarpone/vanilla. Heaven!
My first plating attempt. Not too horrible but I got a little happy with the cherry compote.
