From Chef Desmond, we have highlights such as the Forest Cherries, a delicate handcrafted creation that reveals layers of impressive flavours – a dark chocolate mousse with spiced cherry confit and kirsch mousse; and the Heritage Chestnut, a chestnut sponge cake within layers of premium Tahitian vanilla chestnut cream and berries compote – both a hint at this year’s signature log cakes.
