On two separate occasions this year, I had the pleasure of going to Marea with a few visiting friends. You see, our good friend Chef Tony recently became the Pastry Chef there, while staying in the Altamarea family after his time at Ai Fiori. Congrats again Tony!
So you know what that means...
I honestly don't have much of a sweet tooth, but the desserts at Marea are just phenomenal, well balanced, not overly sweet and always visually stunning. And if you think I'm being biased, I gave the same review of their desserts 2 years ago, long before Tony became the Pastry Chef there.
Here's what was on the menu for our most recent trip in November, don't worry, I shared these with 5 other people...
|BUDINO DI PIGNOLI - white chocolate pinenut crema, lavender, cassis, apricot sobertto|
|SEMIFREDDO DI NOCCIOLA - piedmont hazelnut, dark chocolate, grapefruit, anise mascarpone|
|PANNA COTTA - vanilla panna cotta, local white grape granita, amaretti, fennel|
