Dessert is a typically sweet course that concludes a meal. The course usually consists of sweet foods, but may include other items.There is a wide variety of desserts in western cultures including cakes, cookies, biscuits, gelatins, pastries, ice creams, pies, puddings, and candies. Fruit is also commonly found in dessert courses because of its naturally occurring sweetness. Many different cultures have their own variations of similar desserts around the world, such as in Russia, where many breakfast foods such as blint, oladi, and syrniki can be served with honey and jam to make them popular as desserts. The loosely defined course called dessert can apply to many foods.

    • How do you serve icewine? Food pairings with icewine?

  • Charleston: A Place for Food, Wine and Getting Carded

    I recently went on a girl’s trip to Charleston, SC, a Southern city that I had not visited in probably 30 years. It was all about good wine, great food and girlfriends. One thing I noticed during our stay there is that the dining scene – especially established restaurants with well thought through food and wine programs – innately seemed to do the right thing when it comes to consumers.

  • Three Christmas Wines from Austria

    …. But TBAs are special, and the grapes used to produce them have so little juice available that you'll often see the wines sold in small formats, and I admit that this 187mL size is just about perfect for something so sweet and rich. It has a lush aroma of honeysuckle and musk that is enchanting. On the palate it is like golden sunshine, and I would highly recommend it. Note: These wines were provided as samples for review.…
