Last week I was invited to preview the new Valentine’s Day special at local fave, Spot Dessert Bar (13 Saint Marks Place)! New York’s dessert-lovers have been flocking to Spot for their unique Dessert Tapas for years, and they keep coming up with new hits. The perennial fave is the Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake, and their Chocolate Forest was voted Village Voice’s Best Dessert of 2014. Love Fondue is the new special and it’s a great Valentine’s Day treat. Love Fondue is a chiffon cake encased in white chocolate mousse served with fresh raspberries and strawberry ice cream and topped with dark chocolate sauce. It’s served with the chocolate sauce on the side at first, which is then poured on with a flourish by the server – a fun presentation!
One thing I find fascinating about pastries is the combination of visual artistry and sweets, so I was thrilled that Spot shared with me this original sketch by Chef Ian Kittichai of the Love Fondue. How cool!
