St Jude & Citronelle

Last Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited to the famous Citronelle for a dessert reception and a toy drive/fundraiser for St Jude. I took my friend Radha with me and we got to sample a few desserts.

To be honest, the desserts looked better than they tasted, but it was still a fun outing.

Look at the spread! One of my favorites was a chocolate cream puff with mini chocolate-y things on top.


The other good dessert was a pear tart on the left. The fruit tart on the right was mediocre: the dough was really hard, so I just ate the berries.


I did not try the apricot tart on the left, but the cute looking "egg" dessert was good. The inside had lemon curd, which looked exactly like an egg yolk; the outside was merengue.


After 3 desserts I was actually full, so did not get to try the cheesecake or the lemony looking dessert below.

Too bad these beauties didn't live up to their appearance. This looks like it would be a candy store for moi.

I wish I could have two of each of those scrumptious desserts! Can you believe we still haven't been to Citronelle? I wish it was a 5-star :)
