Foie gras profiteroles - Le Pigeon
Caramel sauce, sea salt. 5 course tasting menu $85
Le Pigeon, Portland OR

This was the second time I’ve had this dessert, and it was just as good as I remember! This is definitely rich and decadent, but the texture and temperature of the foie gras ice cream surprisingly makes it feel on the light side. This dessert is SO good!

United has been giving these out for a while now, and I really like them. They’re not too sweet and I like its soft, chewy texture.

Warm peach sticky bun – Town Hall

Warm peach sticky bun - Town Hall
Bourbon caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream, candied pecans. $9
Town Hall, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this dessert was very tasty and the peaches were great. The sticky bun was a bit too caramelized on the bottom and hard to cut through, but all the flavors were there and the vanilla ice cream helped to soften up everything.

This was a very simple, light and elegant dish and it tasted really good! I don’t think I’ve ever had this before but I can see that it’s a great cost effective way to put out a delicious dessert. You really need the toasted almonds and caramel sauce to elevate it though. Noms!
