Divine Desserts for National Dessert Day


Dessert lovers — today is your day: National Dessert Day. Too often, we fill up on appetizers and desserts, neglecting the grand finale that could and should complete our dining experiences. Desserts come in many forms, but today we should all acknowledge just how much time and attention goes into really special desserts. If baking is like science, then desserts are like chemistry class. Appreciate the thought and precision that goes into each of the following divine desserts…

White Buffalo Club: dessert diamonds in the rough

A hidden gem in itself, the White Buffalo Club’s dessert menu is a cherry on top of a great meal. The cheesecake or French Quarter beignets are a sure bet. But at the moment, we’re endorsing the huckleberry creme brulee. Classic creme brulee is spruced up with the flavor of huckleberries, then rounded out with chocolate balsamic and strawberry gelee. persephone dessert

Persephone: simply delicious

If you haven’t had a chance to try the new dinner offerings at the Persephone West Bank location, go…now. Read more about the dinner menu, here. In the meantime, we’ll give you another reason to make a dinner reservation: dessert. If you believe Persephone has a knack for morning sweets, you better believe they’re prepared to exercise that same skill in the dinnertime dessert realm. Our recommendation is the cookies and milk. We’re talking delicious, mini chocolate chip and double chocolate chip cookies, served warm and alongside pistachio milk. Because no one ever said desserts had to be complex to be delicious.

Spur: peaches and port

I’m not usually one to inspire a sense of urgency but, this is a matter of dessert, so take it seriously when I implore you to visit Spur Restaurant & Bar as soon as possible. Before this Teton Village establishment shuts down for a break at the end of this month, it is pivotal that you go to dinner and save room for dessert. As beautifully displayed as they are delicious, we can’t recommend enough the peaches and port. A mascarpone-filled puff pastry is paired with honey-glazed poached peaches, whipped crème fraîche, honey-almond streusel and port wine syrup. Um, yum!

Local: bourbon drinks and desserts

Chocolate, butterscotch and strawberries, oh my! The range of flavors on Local’s dessert menu will have a solution for all types of sweet teeth. As the cold temperatures move into the valley, we’re warming up with the bourbon pecan bread pudding. Candied pecans, bourbon caramel and chantilly cream are just a few of the elements contributing to this delicious dessert. As an added bonus, the bourbon caramel is a perfect tie-in to a bourbon chaser.
