A Taste of Pomegranates
This is a dessert that I just put together today for our upcoming spring menu. I think superfruits are going to be utilized throughout 2009 and I thought we should create a dessert that focused strictly on them. Pomegranates are one of the most well rounded superfruits available throughout the winter that are easy to eat and actually taste good on their own. I was researching the fruit and found out that the juice contains almost three times the total antioxidant ability of the same quantity of green tea or red wine. It also provides substantial amounts of potassium, Vitamin C, and niacin. The dessert is a tasting with three different components; pink peppercorn and pomegranate soup, chocolate pomegranate brownie, and white chocolate pomagranate parfait. Each taste is something completely different to give guest a variety while only spending one fixed price.
