My birthday was in August, and to celebrate I was invited to have lunch in one of my favorite restaurants in the area: Eve, in Old Town Alexandria. The food is superb, the ambiance is lovely, and the service is first class.
As a dessert I had this espectacular pavlova, with gooey meringue layers, goat cheese mousse, and ripe figs with fig sauce. It was absolutely wonderful, gorgeous looking and really delicious. I´m not giving a recipe for this post, just this picture to give you an idea of this delightful dessert. And because I´m thinking that summer in Peru is just around the corner, and fat and juicy figs will be in the market very soon, you can be inspired to prepare something really creative and exquisite with this fruit.
