Travel Challenge: Tiny


This was dessert from our dinner last Saturday night at The Peninsula.

The description said:

Cherry Custard
Pistachio crumble, vanilla braised cherries, Kirsch foam
Pistachio ice cream

Served on a 14″ plate which made the whole thing more diminutive.

There were also a couple plates of mignardises which would have been more appropriate for the challenge. But I wasn’t thinking of that last night. I know sweets are getting smaller and smaller but I’ve never seen them so miniscule.

Lest you think we were not served enough, I would like to clarify that there was a sweet table filled with Greek pastries and cookies in regular sizes which we could freely help ourselves. Plus we were given mini-bundt cake from the hotel’s kitchen for take home.
