Putting a Spin on Tradition

Putting a Spin on Tradition

These five recipes allow you to combine creativity with tradition as they offer more elegant, refined flavors with little extra effort. Each dessert begins with a familiar base or flavor pairing, and proceeds with a makeover or flavor twist. Profiteroles with Pumpkin Ice Cream and a Warm Chocolate Sauce offer a clever spin not only on the classic French dessert, but also on homestyle pumpkin pie. However, the more complex flavor notes do not necessarily mean much more intricate preparation. For example, in the Apple-prune Crumb Cake Squares, the mere addition of prunes gives the cake squares a more sophisticated taste. The same is true of the Individual White Chocolate Cheesecakes with Cranberry Compote, whose plated presentation will invariably impress guests. At once subtle and daring, these desserts demonstrate that novel recipes do not translate to a loss of tradition. If you are looking to spice up or add a touch of elegance to your holiday menu, we hope you find some inspiration here. Your guests will undoubtedly admire - and quickly devour - the results.

I would like to take a moment of your time to tell you what an amazing employee I have found Ann  to be. She was so helpful to me during all facets of the gift ordering process. I have never dealt with your company before and it was with fear and trepidation that I emailed for help. I need'nt have worried because Ann was there. She took care of everything and made my holiday giving a pleasure. I have since ordered chocolates for family members and Ann was right there to be of assistance. Because of her I have made you guys my chocolatier of choice and record. You have a star here!  - Meg from Ontario, CA
