Fresh, made-to-order pastries are the name of the game at Drew’s Pastry Place. And so authentic! Owner and Pastry Chef Drew Rogers forked over his recipe for Tiramisu — featured on a recent episode of TLC’s Bakery Boss. High marks for this marvelous dessert…
How many times have you found yourself in a business meeting, dreaming of a lunch like this? Too often if you ask me! The French Corner Catering Company has redefined ‘gourmet’ for on-the-go…and your options are almost endless. Delicious entrées, tasty sandwich platters, breakfast specials – you name it, they can make it.
This year, give your oven a break and let some of the top cupcakeries in town do all the baking! Cakes and cookies are desserts of decades past. Cupcakes are the new holiday party dessert.
The Houstonian’s Pastry Chef, Catherine Rodriguez, tells me Italy was the inspiration for this delicious Cointreau Tea Cake. Include it when planning your next party either at your place or at the Houstonian.
Feel the passion this Valentine’s Day, thanks to the good folks at Olivette at The Houstonian. Their Passion Fruit Panna Cotta was a sensational hit last year. I don’t often eat dessert unless it’s chocolate, but I have to say this one gives chocolate a run for its money! The zesty, exotic flavor blew me away. Watch how it came together in the video above. It’s surprisingly easy to prepare.
I don’t often rave about desserts that aren’t chocolate…but I’m passionate about this one! One taste and you’ll see why. It comes from the Houstonian’s Pastry Chef Catherine Rodriguez. BTW, The Houstonian not only has a pastry chef, but an entire pastry staff!!
Little chocolate covered, cream-filled spheres…what’s not to love! My friend (and famed Chef) Lidia Bastianich was kind enough to pass along this highly coveted recipe for her Boston Cream Cakes. The chocolate glaze is absolutely luscious.
