These were A LOT of work. I spent a long time piping chocolate filigrees to go on top of the moouses. I think they turned out really cute though! (And they were really yummy)

-Vanilla Granny Smith Apples
-Thyme Gelee
-Nutmeg Tuile

Chevre Panna Cotta with Tawny Port Reduction

This dessert has a lot of elements. It was also very tasty. The Thyme Gelee was a nice bit of flavor to go with the creamy Panna Cotta and the Tawny Port Reduction.

Plate 3
-Orange Chocolate Souffle

Orange Chocolate Souffle

Souffles have a reputation for being very hard to make. The real problem with souffles is you have maybe 10 mins after you take it out of the oven before it falls. Now imagine trying to plate it, serve it, and not have the customer angry that it fell. This one was nice and chocolaty with a hint of orange. It was oh so good!
