Wedding Dessert Ideas: International Dessert Bar!
Greetings Brides, Grooms, Moms, and Everyone who loves dessert!
Sweet Detente. She was referred to A Legendary Affair by a past bride & friend, Carolyn Stewart O'Reilly who serves as a consultant for restaurants and catering businesses. Thank you, Carolyn!
Robin passionately brings the world together one dessert at a time through her elegant, international creations made with all organic and natural ingredients. I had the pleasure of sampling Robin's unique recipes for 8 desserts that are specialties of 7 countries --- French Macarons, French Sable Signature Dove Cookies, Italian Panforte (chewy, crisp and fresh), Lebanese Maamoul (a nutty cookie filled with the sweetness of fig and crunch of walnut), Russian Kartoshka (smooth and sweet), English Bakewell Tarts (lovely ... filled with almond paste and fruit), Argentinean Alfajores, and Australian Lamingtons (my favorite - light, moist cake with a hint of coconut mixed with the earthy flavor of Green Tea). They were each delicious with a distinct taste --- not too sweet, so that the natural flavors could be enjoyed.
Stay tuned --- as Robin and I have plans for a dessert tasting event at A Legendary Affair. In the meantime, be sure to contact Robin for more information and to discuss your event ideas. She can be reached at (310) 729-3723 or visit her site at www.SweetDetente.com.
