The other day I mentioned Jeni’s in my other blog … 3.10.2011 … If they call it “artisan,” I will come … especially if it involves ice cream or chocolate … or both … « Dennard’s Clipping Service. … Well the only place in NC that has Jeni’s is Dean & DeLuca at Phillips Place … very close to my house … so I stole away for a secret dessert for the evening and they had two flavors … I was not in a brave/adventurous/artisan mood … next time …

RIESLING POACHED PEAR SORBET

The striking aroma, pure flavor and delicate, buttery texture of whole poached Bartlett pears in perfect harmony with sweet Riesling wine. One of Jeni’s Signature Flavors, it’s completely refreshing every day of the year.

Olive Oil with Sea-Salted Pepitas

Sicilian single-estate olive oil. Sea salted pumpkin seeds. Jeni has just returned from Sicily where she helped press the very oil that flavors this grassy, verdant ice cream. Very clean, bright notes with the nutty crunch of toasted, sea salted pepitas. The combination of high-caliber olive oil, butterfat and cream melts in your mouth and opens up beautifully. A graceful tribute to Old World flavors.
