One of our very favorite pastry chefs has a few new fun plates to satisfy your sweet tooth this summer. Jill Bates at Fearing’s located in the Dallas Ritz-Carlton in Uptown is cooling off with seasonal fruit, and of course chocolate in a an even cooler way. Bates enjoys fresh, seasonal items such as peaches and it comes out in one of her dishes presented today.
The latest creation of chef Jill Bates is her Double Chocolate Popsicles with Toasted Almond, Maker’s Mark Cherries and Fleur de Sel Chocolate Cookies. She seemingly enjoys making frozen treats such as these. In the past you might have tasted her blackberry yogurt push up pops that were nothing short of amazing. As the temperatures go from hot to blazing you will want to check out this particularly fun treat very soon.
Another refreshing item we scoped out on Bate’s new summer menu is her Texas Peach and Raspberry Buckles with Oatmeal Sorghum Ice Cream and a Peach Ginger Sauce. A Buckle is closely related to a Crumble, which is related to numerous other versions of down-home pastries such as Cobblers, Brown Betty, Pandowdy, Sonkers and even the Grunt. Funny names for tasty baked fruits set in a variety of pastry.
