Need suggestions for dessert following Christmas meal featuring Melissa Clark's crown roast of pork, described in this week's dining section.
The flavor profile is inspired by traditional Tuscan flavors. Here is the link: http://dinersjournal.blogs... The rest of the menu would be fairly simple, and not too rich. I don't need authenticity here, just some good ideas on how you'd end the meal. Likely sides will be broccoli rabe with savory pine nuts; mashed potatoes with olive oil and parmesan, Amanda's butternut squash puree (which I'll scent with rosemary), apple Mostarda Mantovana + fruit chutneys I made last summer, a light salad, etc. I typically serve fruit and cheese, but want something a bit more festive for the occasion. Thanks, everyone! ;o)
