We most certainly had the best dessert of our little competition, and I think all of the other competitors will agree with me. It was so good that I’ve provided three pics below for you to drool over.
We were greeted on Saturday night at the third and final heat of our Come Dine With Me with a little bowl of olives and delicious little puff pastry pies. There was a choice of Caramelised Onion tarts or the Gorgonzola and Pear tarts.
The starter was a Seafood Linguine.
The main course was an Italian Hotpot served with Pumpkin Potatoes and roasted veg.
The dessert was the most heavenly Cheesecake I have ever tasted. Joc is a genius. I don’t want to say any more about any of the other courses as the marks are still secret at this point. Once all the marks have been sent in, we’re all going out for dinner and our unbiased, uninvolved score-keeper will announce the winner over grub at The Hop House. Hurrah!
Now, here’s that dessert. From three different angles!
I could look at pics of that all day. Although, obviously, I’d prefer to eat the dessert all day.
We also had a post-dessert dessert. It was Alan’s birthday and John had made him a special cake. We sang the song and all. Then we watched The Yellow Submarine and myself and Alan had another dance-off. Think there’s a video of it too…
