New York Wine & Food Festival. Please accept my apologies for the delays, The Breslin, a Kansas weekend, and at least one illness got in the way. But here's the first post, what I did that Saturday. It involved a lot of dessert and some mezcal, thankfully not together.
Saturday Grand Tasting. My plan was to do a lap so that I can be very discriminate in what I tasted, a girl can only eat so much.
Sweet, where I had the bright idea of trying everything. I went 27 out of 30.
Four & Twenty Blackbirds, and try many delicious new ones like Donatella's Zuppa Inglese with Cranberries and Godiva Chocolate.
OTTO's Espresso Gelato in Brioche, an Italian ice cream sandwich. Creamy gelato accompanied by smooth caramel crema, simple really is best.
Colicchio and Sons' Sweet Potato Cheesecake complete with freshly fired marshmallow topping.
Clinton St. Baking Company's Warm Pear Upside-Down Cake with Pecan Ice Cream. It tasted like the cake you wished you could have at Thanksgiving, but you only end up making another pumpkin pie anyway. In other words, the perfect fall dessert.
