Last night we stopped by Trellis (@heathman hotel in Kirkland) for desserts and a drink.
They have a great outside seating and although we live very close we actually had never been before.
We ended ordering a dessert (sage honey flan), fries and wine.
The flan had a great texture, but I really could not taste the sage and overall thought it was a bit on the blend side.
Fries were great.
They were out of couple of dessert wines so we opted for a Malbec.
Overall it was too little for a full review. The menu looked interesting, but I’ll have to go back to truly have an idea of how good it is. I am hoping it’s a bit better than the first impression I had from the dessert.
H wanted a bit of dessert, but we had none and we did not feel driving anywhere. The fridge did not offer too many options for a dessert, but we managed to find some biscuits in the freezer. We also had the frozen berries that we usually use for V’s shakes, and we did have couple of eggs. Plenty enough for a quick dessert which required mostly warming up a few things and assemble them.
- Biscuits cook in about 15mins in the oven
- The frozen berries go in the microwave for about 90-120 secs. Make sure you cool them right away
- Combine the whites from a couple of eggs, add honey and just a bit of lemon zest. Whip until it is light and stiff peaks
- Plate it!
- It worked out great! In about 20mins we had a great dessert ready to go and it tasted great!
I have never been a baker. So, when I need to make dessert I usually improvise and put together a few things. My basic principle – everyone likes ice-cream with some liquor!
For this quick one I bought:
box of fresh raspberries
ice-cream (i think it was french vanilla – get a good one!)
angel food cake
liquor – i used triple sec.
