What dessert do you never want to see again?
Anything with the word “deconstructed.” I just don’t get it. Why would you deconstruct a dessert? Then you’re eating a part of the dessert that should be eaten whole.
What’s your dessert guilty pleasure?
My favorite is the Portillo’s chocolate cake. My husband and I had that as our wedding cake.
What’s your biggest dessert failure?
For a period of time, everything I tried to make tasted like breakfast food. I made milk chocolate and sage ice cream, and it tasted like breakfast sausage. It became a running joke.
What’s the weirdest dessert you’ve ever come up with?
Black garlic financier. Black garlic fermented is sweet but still has that garlicky flavor, like the taste of molasses.Edit Module
