Julia Child and a grand dessert

Earlier this month I featured some comments about a fabulous lunch I had with friends at Christopher’s restaurant following a viewing of the new movie “Julie and Julia”. I mentioned then that the chef/owner Christopher Gross was featuring a special Julia Child dinner during the month of August to honor the grand lady and the release of the movie about her life and the young woman, Julie Powell who was inspired by her.

Well, you might say that I and my friends were inspired to try this special meal. So today I’m showing you a photograph of the impressive dessert the followed a very rich and beautiful meal. The dessert is called Parnassienne of Chocolate Mousse Tower with Fresh Berries. Mmmmmm….delicious!

Christopher's new restaurant is excellent, as was his previous restaurant. His chocolate desserts are outstanding. I would usually get the hot and cold chocolate because it comes with a sampling of 4 or 5 chocolate desserts. His mushroom soup is the best, anywhere.
