Appetizer: Pork Terrine w/ Cherry Campote, Apple and Herb Salad with Cherry Puree

We always look forward to dining at Impressions. During their Valentine’s Day special earlier this year, we learned about Mignardises – small, bite-size pastries usually paired with coffee or tea. It’s a pre-dessert meal before the actual dessert.

And last week, in a media tasting session of the Chirstmas Menu Set, we found out that there can also be a pre-appetizer before serving the actual appetizer. 🙂

Mignardises: Red and Green Macaroon, Ube Cannele, Ginger Spiced Pralines

As mentioned above, those little palate-pleasers are called mignardises or bite-size chocolates and pastries.

While the actual dessert is a festive Raspberry Panna Cotta with Red Cruble, Raspberry Spiced Ganache, Coconut Lady Finger, and White Chocolate Vodka Ice Cream.

The last one was a good way to end it with sweetness and cheers! 🙂
