I’m not big on desserts, but I’m a bit of a dessert menu voyeur- I like to look at the dessert menu for a cheap thrill to see if there is something worthwhile. I like to see creative juices flow and see new ideas.
I know people have a fondness for bread pudding but I’m a bit disappointed when I see it on the menu. I feel it a bit of a cop out in terms of a dessert effort- kind of an overly eggy version of French toast in a casserole form. It’s got sugar, vanilla, carbs- what’s not to appeal to the pleasure centersbof the brain?
I just see it on the menu, and I feel that sort of sunken, let down feeling. I could make that at home; is the thought that runs through my head.
I feel a bit like creme brûlée has been over kill lately as well, but at least there is a bit of skill required for a properly done Creme brûlée.
