Coco la ti da - A Possible Dining Club Choice?

Here's an Seattle P-I article about Coco la ti da, the new Capitol Hill dessert lounge by Sue McCown. She's the genius pastry chef behind the amazing desserts at Earth & Ocean. I'll never forget the gingerbread/eggnog parfait I had several years ago at a Christmas dinner at E&O!!! Superb! I can't wait to try it. Here are some pictures from the web site -- gorgeous, aren't they?

And here are descriptions of a few of the yummy desserts:

  • Coco la ti da: This is our namesake cake, made of triple chocolate shortbread, devil's food cake, creamy coconut, and coconut-chocolate ganache covered with a chocolate crackling glaze.
  • Cherries and Cola: A filling of preserved Bing cherries and white chocolate ganache infused with Vanilla Cola turn this divine chocolate cake into the life of the party.
  • Peanut Gallery: It's like a peanut-butter cookie turned into a celebration, with creamy peanut butter ganache spread between layers of chocolate cake.
  • Tomboy: The distinctive flavor of this gingery genoise cake comes from dark stout beer, molasses, and a kick of nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom. Of course, it's topped with a sweet cream cheese frosting.

This just might be HEAVEN!!! Maybe this will be my new dining club choice... I know I would not be disappointed with cake for dinner.
