What Three Mini-Desserts Can I Offer Together, And What Hot Drink Can I Serve With It?
Q: I just bought a Tassimo hot beverage maker. You know, the machine that makes - (deep breath) - 'American coffee', Cappuccino, 'Twinings English tea', 'Suchard Hot chocolate', 'Carte Noire Crema Intenso', 'Latte Machiato', and a good-old-fashioned Espresso. Anyway... I want to try making a selection of different mini-desserts for different drinks. Say, three flavours for each drink. (I've got a lotta time on my hands, and a lotta friends who want to try the machine). So, what I've got as the perfect accompanying flavours are: 1) Lemon cake, vanilla ice and chopped fresh mango, ...to go with the tea. 2) Brownie, pot of hot fudge, fresh half-strawberries, ... to go with an Espresso. And.... ...after that, I'm running out of ideas. So, anyone want to shove in their perfect trinity of desserts and preffered hot drink for a perfect gourmet moment?
A: Cookies with tea (chocolate chips or those mixed italian cookies). I love sweet bread with coffee, or even regular bread with 'Ritz Crackers' (its a cultural thing, Hispanic, or Puerto Rican to be exact). You can serve crackers with regular cheese, white cheese and pieces of 'Guava Paste'. Check out the example but don't forget to add the crackers! http://www.flickr.com/photos/mr_t_in_dc/... pick up some pastries such as these http://www.flickr.com/photos/cknlomein/1... Also, coffee cake and Tiramisu, that would go well with the stronger beverages you should go with a slice of cheese cake, with strawberries and whip cream. Drink will be with a Vanilla Lattee or even a all fruit tard with a caramel Lattee.
