October 16, 2013

Dessert at my house when I was a kid was probably not that different from yours: ice cream, candy bars, some box made chocolate cake.  On especially good days, there would be the tube of Toll House chocolate chip cookies or maybe some No-Bakes.

So when I read

Pumpkin Chai Brioche Sandwich
Grilled Chai Brioche, Pumpkin Chai Gelato, Nutella, Coconut Jam
 
I think to myself "Whah...?  That sounds kind of out of control!"
 
Then I read
 
Persimmon Chai Salambo
Masala Chai Creme Brulee Tart with salty chocolate and raspberries
 
and a part of my brain starts to simmer.  I mean, what the heck is a Salambo?  
 
 
Oh. Oh!!
 
Where can one suddenly elevate his palatte from the World of the Simple Cupcake to the crazy Wonderland that serves up a 
 
Earl Grey Sundae
Dark Chocolate, Peanut Butter, And Earl Grey Sorbet, Flambeed Black Mission Figs, Sweet Potato Fries, and Burnt Earl Grey Meringue 

for less than the cost of selling your youngest child to the circus?
