I was recently smitten by this delicious Sablé Breton with Vanilla Bavaroise, Trio of Rhubarb and Creme Fraiche Sorbet at Café Boulud Palm Beach.
A sablé breton is a French butter cookie that originated in Normandy, France. "Sablé" is French for "sand" which refers to the crumbly, sandy texture of the shortbread-like cookie. As a fan of rhubarb, I thoroughly enjoyed its three different incarnations, the crispy rhubarb "chip," the flavorful rhubarb compote in the center of the bavaroise, and bright pink bits of poached rhubarb adorning the plate. The 2009 Russian Hill, Late Harvest Viognier, Russian River Valley generously provided by Owner and CEO of Russian Hill Estate, Ellen Mack, was the perfect pairing for this dish making the experience a true Guilty Pleasure!
Wishing you a delicious weekend,
