During our stay in Vancouver…
After a super disappointing dinner at a sushi restaurant (this is why it’s better to make your own at home!) we were dying to find a place to splurge on desserts hoping to make up a bad dining night.
I suggested somewhere French. As we stopped at a red light, my husband looked over to his right and there it was, Cafe Regalade, a fine French Bistro. By the ambiance, it did not disappoint. And then I saw the biggest, fluffiest, meringue ever drizzled with caramelized sugar + a custardy sauce. I was sold. It was a special for the night and happened to be their last one. Do you believe in fate?
Topped w/ caramelized sugar and honey roasted almonds, it was the perfect crunch to a light airy dessert. And the custard sauce to dunk into. WOW. You can’t appreciate the size from the pic but it’s twice the size of my fist. I need to learn how to make this!
Not sure what the husband had but it was a pie that resembled the fluffiness and consistency of tiramisu (my most FAVORITE dessert!)
Enjoy your Saturday!
Til next post, Kellie.
