3 Most Creative Desserts

BY Riki Altman-Yee, Lad Makinde, Teresa K. Traverse, David Tyda and Lauren Swanson | January 4, 2017 | Feature National

The city's booming culinary scene is hallmarked by inspiring new restaurant openings, impressive chefs, dishes to die for, experiences to savor and a spectrum of food and drink trends that take dining out into a whole new and exciting realm.

1. Dessert Sampler, Artizen Crafted American Kitchen & Bar
Like nostalgia on a plate, this trio of confections by chef Dushyant Singh has all the items you loved as a youngster, with an artisanal twist. The dish changes regularly, but here you’ll see a gooey caramel apple, peanut butter chocolate fudge and white chocolate cheesecake capped with pillows of cotton candy. $7, 1100 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, 602.522.6655

2. Peruvian Posset, MATCH Cuisine & Cocktails
Crispy picarones—a Peruvian delicacy that could best be described as a crispy doughnut made with sweet potatoes and squash—rest atop sweet custard and lime curd, with a garnish of sweet potato chips and meringue sticks. $10, 1100 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, 602.875.8080

3. Chocolate Mousse Tower, Christopher’s
So nice—the chocolate appears thrice in this famous dish by chef Christopher Gross. A chocolate lattice envelopes a pillar of white chocolate, with—you guessed it—chocolate mousse inside. Fresh berries and espresso cream sauce adorn. $10, Biltmore Fashion Park, 2502 E. Camelback Road, Ste. 102, Phoenix, 602.522.2344
