So for tonight’s dessert I am serving friends this incredibly simple and light Persimmon Gelée. Any fruit can be used but persimmons have a sugar sweet taste that many autumn fruits do not possess. Plate with honey and dusted cinnamon!

While I was in Tuscany, I fell in love with 2 things: almond flavored desserts and figs! So everyone takes something different away from their travels through this region of Italy and for me it is this Tuscan Frangipane with Figs. The frangipane hits your mouth with several flavor with the sweet almonds, lemon zest and vanilla bean. Topped with figs, thyme and orange zest this lovely dessert will impress all guest with the diverse flavors of all things that are Tuscan!
Here is a simple dessert, a sweet and tangy Lemon Sweet Cream with Winter Fruit. This time of the year it is always a challenge with the limited array of winter fruit available here in frozen Northern Germany. But the pairing of the sweet, crunchy pomegranate and tangy grapefruit is perfect for your taste buds with the lemon sweet cream. So add everything to the blender, pour into jars and top with fruit, and celebrate with us!

Vanilla = a perfect Valentine’s Day!
