A match made in (dessert) heaven

Last month, I wrote about a chocolate and coffee pairing event at Finale. Two of my girlfriends and I attended, and although the $20 price point was a bit higher than we would have liked, we had a blast. It was really interesting to hear from the pastry chef and coffee expert as to why each dessert and drink paired together so well, and even though the event is advertised as just samplings of each dessert and drink, we had full sizes of each drink brought right to our table and the dessert samples were so rich we could barely finish them.

If you missed out on that tasting, the desserterie is having another, similar event on Tuesday, December 6th - this time pairing a variety of decadent desserts with six dessert wines. Who can say no to pumpkin cheesecake, apple cranberry pie, pineapple upside down cake, chocolate bourbon pecan pie and peanut butter pie, each paired with a different type of wines? Not me. Nicole Coady, Executive Pastry Chef for Finale, will speak during the tasting and explain why each wine accents each individual dessert.

This is a perfect date night activity or a great excuse for a girls night out and definitely encourage you to check it out! Comment & let me know if you're planning to attend!

The event will take place on Tuesday December 6th from 6:30 to 8 PM at the Park Plaza Finale, One Columbus Avenue. Cost is $20 a person, plus tax and gratuity. To RSVP, just call 617.423.3184 and put your name on the list.
