By this stage all thoughts of tackling a cheese course had gone out of the window, and we decide that desserts are a must. I had spied a delicious looking tart earlier, but in the end decided upon the Apple and Egg which is a combination of (... you guessed it!) apple and egg textures - parfait, puree, meringue, nougat... you name it. This was a beautiful looking dessert, and on Squeak's tasting, was better than hers, but in my opinion the dessert disappointed. It really just tasted like apple sauce, meringue and ice cream. It lacked complexity and interest for me.
Squeak ordered the intriguing chocolate mushrooms, forest floor, sorrel mint granita and meringue. This was also spectacular to behold. It was quite lovely but ultimately disappointing also. Squeak found that it really just was chocolate ice cream (and not amazing at that), meringue and crumbled chocolate cake. The most interesting element was the sorrel and mint granita, but there was not enough of that to compensate what amounted to a relatively average dessert. So the final dessert elements were absolutely stunning to look at, but let us down in terms of flavour and complexity.
