Dessert at the Cafe at the Frick. See those slices of fresh pear? The flaky crust galette was warmed and topped with a scoop of ricotta gelato. That’s a golden drizzle of bourbon caramel and a shake of cinnamon you see finishing the presentation. Oh and a pansy with a few blueberries for garnish. Mmmmmm.It was a perfect fall dessert.
Before lunch, my friend V and I had seen the exhibit of Katherine Hepburn Dressed for Stage and Screen showing her Costume and Fashion Collection. On view until January 12th. This winter we’ll watch a few of the old movies featured to see her wearing the costumes on screen. Here’s an article link https://www.post-gazette.com/life/fashion/2019/10/17/The-Frick-Pittsburgh-Katharine-Hepburn-Dressed-for-Stage-Screen/stories/201910170010in the Post-Gazette by Sarah Bauknecht about the exhibition
from The Philadelphia Story
Katherine Hepburn had a 20 inch waist.
Three photos-variations on Fruit- pastries, a bowlful and a single red apple.
Mark brought a pastry box filled with “fruits” from Mozart’s Austrian Cafe down on High Street in Columbus. The peach had marzipan inside. I checked out their menu and plan to get a piece of apple strudel before I return to Pittsburgh. Their dessert descriptions are enticing. You can eat in their restaurant, too. Piano bar.
Gluten free Tortes available
A traditional Hungarian torte, the Esterhazy is made from individually baked layers of flourless almond meringue filled with a rum-infused almond buttercream, and decorated with a distinct chocolate striped pattern. 7″, $35, Decorated $40
And at Mark and Erika’s home, on the same kitchen counter as the pastries sat a large wooden bowl filled with fresh fruit.
I chose one to wash and cut up into slices.
