My boyfriend and I went out to lunch this weekend at one of our favorite restaurants downtown, Panini Cafe. After our meals (he ordered the breakfast platter and I had the vegetable panini) we ordered dessert: baklava served with vanilla ice cream. The ice cream looked so pretty garnished with a sprig of fresh mint that I had to find a picture to share with you.
I love the way a simple garnish enhances any dish. In this case, the added flavor at the end of the bowl is also quite nice.
My favorite ice cream will always be mint chocolate chip. What's yours?
