Cheese plate with raisin brioche – Belga Queen (Gent, Belgium)
A delicious ending to a lovely tasting menu.
Chocolate chip-bacon cookie – Chocatoo (San Jose, California)
I obviously couldn’t wait to take a bite before taking a picture…
Marzipan Fruits – Milan, Italy
I came upon these almost-too-beautiful-to-eat (almost) delicacies while roaming around Milan.
S’morcon – Chocatoo (San Jose, California)
Yep, s’mores with bacon!
Fish & Chips, “Dome” Chocolate Cake – Ballard’s at the West Baden Springs Hotel (Indiana)
It was a beautiful experience dining here- not necessarily for the food, but for the mesmerizing dome and the elegant atrium area. Fish and chips, a beer, and chocolate cake helped up the enjoyment a bit more ;)
Hamburger Curry – Muracci’s (Los Altos, California)
This delicious hamburger curry was worth the (warning included while you order) 20-minute wait. Juicy, flavorful, topped with egg and served with brown rice, green salad and a creamy potato salad. The accompanying curry and a “brushstroke” of wasabi complete this amazing dish.
Hot Brown, Crawfish Salad, Mint Julep – Blackbird Tavern (San Jose, California)
This weekend, I got “down and derby” at a Kentucky Derby party. In addition to donning a summer dress and a big floppy hat, I enjoyed mint juleps, a hot brown sandwich, and a crawfish & beet salad. Deeelish!
