My Delicious Desserts for 2016

I had the chance to try some delicious desserts  over the past 12 months.  Here's a look at some of my favorites.

Pasticcere Antonino Maresca
Insieme/ Together 

Strawberry sorbet (made without adding water), a silk screened strawberry, almond cream, and a white chocolate cylinder filled with buffalo milk cream mousse.

Napule' - A mixture of dolci featuring some of Naples' images and icons.  

Pasticcere Carmine Di Donna
Mela - the big apple! An exciting  mix of fruit and chocolate.  Inside? Green apple, lemon juice and candied lemons, almond mousse! Then dipped in a white chocolate then green mirror glaze.  The leaves are made of white chocolate. 😉

Tiramisu - Di Donna's take on a classic dessert.  Di Donna carefully placed a spoonful of velvety mascarpone cream on the dish.  He then set down his prized mini tower that he carefully constructed earlier on top.  A tower that included two different palline, little balls.  Light colored made with creamy mascarpone and light brown made of coffee cream. Four flavorful discs help Di Donna support his structure;
 2 63 % dark chocolate, 2 coffee sables. A sprinkling of coffee crumble and a side of coffee ice cream!

Chef Lino Scarallo
Roccoco 2016/2017 - Christmas traditions meet Neapolitan chic gourmet.   A fusion of pisto; spices such as cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and star anise.  Almonds, honey, and lemon/orange peel...inside the sphere, a creamy roccoco' mousse!

Chef Luigi Salomone
Mustacciolo - another look at a Classic Christmas dessert.
