the savory & the sweet

The September issue of Bon Appetit magazine has a feature on desserts made with salt or pepper, like Pink Peppercorn Panna Cotta with Macerated Cherries or this Devils Food Cake with Boiled Black Pepper Icing.

As you can probably guess from previous posts, I am a huge fan of salty and sweet desserts.   Also amazing are spicy and sweet, like San Diego local Chuao Chocolatier’s Spicy Maya, with dark chocolate, Pasilla chile, cayenne pepper and cinnamon.  Readers, how do you like your desserts: savory and sweet, or straight sugary goodness?

  1. Both – I will basically eat any combination of dessert, as long as it tastes good. I’m easy like that.

  2. OMG. I’m not even that big a chocolate fan but that is making me drool.

  3. I love salty and spicy desserts. They seem so much more complex and interesting. Also Chuo is the shizz.

    Pink Peppercorn Panna Cotta wins because it is the most fun to say. =D

    Salty and sweet is always good, especially if it’s heavy on the salt. I just got my issue in the mail. Looking forward to checking it out!
