anniversary, ganache, ice cream, Marjoram, recipe, strawberry
For my grandparents’ 60th anniversary I made a brownie-torte with chocolate ganache and strawberries. The ganache was just heavy cream, bittersweet chocolate and butter melted in a bain-marie. It was kind of amazing.
The strawberry marjoram ice cream was also a success! I love the astringent brightness that the marjoram imparted. It may have been the camphor or pinene found in its oils.
It was the chocolatiest dessert I had ever tasted in my life and I just had another slice for breakfast because it was that good!
