When I’m putting together a relatively dense holiday meal, I like to keep the dessert light and tangy whenever possible. For Christmas Eve this year, I made Sous Vide Leg of Lamb along with Roasted Harissa Carrots and Scalloped Potatoes. Heavy, heavier, and heaviest. If we were going to have dessert after all those carbs and protein, I knew it would need to be something to cut through the dense flavors of the night’s dishes….
I may not be the biggest sweets person on the planet, but man do I like making pretty desserts. It’s so fun to just zone out and only focus on getting the lattice on your blackberry pie juuuust right or getting the perfect char on your crème brûlée….
