Crystany’s Brasserie: Chocolate Cake
This cake from Crystany’s Brasserie is new on the menu and ready to amaze. It’s everything a classic german-styled chocolate cake should be. It’s moist, warm, decadent, and topped with ice cream and fresh mint. The real stunner is that this chocolate-lover’s paradise is 100 per cent gluten free, just like everything else coming out of their kitchen.

Blomidon Inn: Banana Tarte Tatin
This new launch from Blomidon Inn is sure to make you go bananas. This upside-down caramelized banana tart is crowned with a fluffy coconut mousse, crunchy almond tuile, and a mound of guava sorbet.

The Port Pub: Frozen Peanut Butter Pie
Still craving pie? This Frozen Peanut Butter Pie from The Port Pub will perk you up on even the hottest summer days. A palette of caramel, mint, fresh berries and fluffy whipped cream turn this decedent pie into a true masterpiece.
Le Caveau Restaurant: Haitian Chocolate Pot De Creme
Here’s another one for chocolate lovers. This silky chocolate custard would be amazing on its own. However, the talent at Le Caveau Restaurant at Grand Pré Winery went the extra mile and added dreamy Chantilly cream, fresh seasonal berries and crushed pistachios. The exquisite flavour profile is perfect for the sophisticated palate, or if you just love all things chocolate.
