sweet_raku_1We took a seat at the bar and the magic was revealed. The ladies creating these desserts were artists – and watching them craft was entertainment in itself. We looked at the menu. Jeff decided on the Ringo. A freshly made buttery pastry with apple compote, paired with creamy gelato and all sorts of lovely accoutrements. Quite a dessert on its own, however, the star of the show was the magnificent apple.
