Most people look forward to dessert, and several small dessert courses add even more excitement at the end of a dinner party. Different types of plates also contribute to the fun—for example, a scoop of bright sorbet in an egg cup, flan in a brandy snifter, a macedoine of fruits in a Bordeaux goblet, espresso mousse in an espresso cup. The only limit is your imagination!
Add chocolate decorations to plain mousse and serve with some truffles for a festive dessert. Photo by Kelly Cline | IST.
