"Dessert at Auberge du Soleil" Rutherford Travelogue by riorich55
Rutherford Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 27 photos
That has been my motto since childhood. Thank goodness I had a mom who didn't enforce the, "you must finish everything on your plate before you get dessert" rule. Especially when we had Lima Beans (I hated them then, but I like them now).
Anyway there were a choice of 7 desserts on the menu that evening and since we had the 4 course dinner they were already included with the price. The only really hard decision was of course only being able to select 2 of the 7. We opted not to have any cheese as we figured we could get some cheeses during our California adventures later in the week.
One of our choices of the evening was this concoction of interesting items. This is the only thing that I'm not sure I have right, but having reviewed the menu several times and looked at the picture I believe that this dessert was:
"Fairy Tale Pumpkin Custard, Caramelized Milk, Sweet Tooth Espresso Ice Cream, Nutmeg"
I'm pretty sure that those orange items on the plate were cumquats.
Our second choice was another tantalizing bite by bite experience which consisted of:
"Strawberries "Romanoff," Muscavado Ice Cream, Sour Cream Panna Cotta, Grand Marnier"
In conclusion, an expensive dinner, but when it is served in an outdoor setting overlooking a wine country valley with ones beautiful wife, it is all worth it and then some.
Until my next restaurant review (no they are not all this long winded) Chow!!
