For most of the world ordering dessert is a treat. It really isn’t for me.
I would rather have an appetizer or side dish. It can be disappointing when I’m having dinner with a friend and they light up as they ask me if I was to split dessert only to have me half-heartedly answer ok.
I like chocolate, but not really after a meal. Cheesecake and creme brulee are also good but I wouldn’t go out of my way to order them.
But tonight I found a really delicious dessert at the Four Season Koele. My mother insisted on having dessert and as we were on a former pineapple plantation it seemed fitting the dessert should reflect that. I have had a lot of pineapple dessert in Maui but this one really stood out. The pineapple was topped with coconut pineapple ice cream – it was amazing.
I would ask for the recipe but I know the reason the ice cream was so good is that the ingredients were fresh, I’ll never be able to recreate that and would rather stick with the memory.
