Goat Cheese Quenelles, Poached Pears, Pistachios, Lavender Honey @ Lilette
Cheese and dessert compete in France for the honor of being the final course in your meal. Here we have an item on Lilette’s dessert list that is both cheese and sweet. Best of all, the ingredients on the sweet side are searsonl local fruits. In the dish-naming convention of our times, all the description we need is right there on the menu. Taste that lavender honey before you dig into the rest. It’s beguiling.
