Must-try desserts at PortoBay
Desserts are created for our pleasure. They are not mere complements to a meal. The sweet flavours, the diverse textures and aromas are the indispensable finishing of this culinary art.
No ordinary epilogue can be written about the dessert menus at the PortoBay restaurants. It must include references to its quality, freshness, brilliance and satisfaction. Each spoonful brings real happiness. It comes from flavours that melt on the tongue and stay with us, even after we get off the table. The merit, I have no doubt, comes from the talented people involved in its creation.
If you think one does not eat with our eyes, look again at these pictures and read their descriptions. Devour them mentally and then visit each of these restaurants and taste them slowly, one spoon at a time . ..
Chocolate ball with hazelnut mousse, Madeira wine parfait, passion fruit coulis and raspberry ice cream
When this dish arrives at the table, you feel, at the same time, an enormous desire and a slight shame of breaking it apart. The golden glow of the chocolate ball covers a velvety mousse. To unravel it, just break it with the spoon. The fruity raspberry ice cream on the right and the softness of the parfait on the left creates a pleasant challenge. At the intersection of these two dead-end streets, we always get the chocolate in the middle, which, as a traffic officer, sends us to each direction. On the right, we sense the fruity aroma. On the left, the tropical scent, finished with the touch of small flowers, colour, flavours and the pleasure of a glass of Madeira wine. You can try it in the Med restaurant, (Vila Porto Mare resort).
Only good ideas can come out of the Paris-Lisboa-Funchal combination. In this dessert, Chef João Espírito Santo (Bistrô4
. PortoBay Liberdade) combines the flavour of the choux pastries with the custard tart filling and the honey cake.
The best of each destination in one single dessert, or in one word - genius !! Harmonize with Port wine for a stopover in Northern Portugal ;)
An excellent dessert creates memories. It makes us return to eat it again and relive happy moments. Enjoy !!
