Fig pistachio dessert www.chefmavro.com/English      Excerpt from Chef Mavro’s letter introducing the new Fall Menu:

“Dessert has to be a harmonious continuation of the dinner. This is why I designed & executed the poached fig in spiced Burgundy wine accompanied with tapioca dumpling filled with toasted pistachio-fig marmalade & a side of crazy creamy pistachio ice cream. You might ask me how come your pistachio ice cream is not green? Just because we never use food coloring…

And the wine? Again, the Maculan, 2012 Dindarello won the dessert pairings. No surprise, this is a perfect dessert wine, not too sweet, long finish, ripe citrus fruit & orange blossom. What a marriage with the poached figs.”
