After something as wholesome as Shrimp and Grits, it’s just natural to want something equally as pleasant and twice as sweet to finish off the meal. Luckily, Amen has redone their dessert menu and outdone themselves with a rustic selection of desserts with some southern personality.
The Classic bread pudding is cobbler like, with a custard base and the fullness of egg, stained with bursts of blackberry.
Cocoa fans will love the chocolate terrine in all of it’s richness and find it impossible to keep from blending each bite with a bit of tart berry glaze.
While photographing the Creme Brulee, Chef Stephen explained that he would like for it to be seasonal and he has a thin mint cookie Creme Brulee idea in the works. This Eggnog Creme Brulee is a warm, carmelized treat with a brittle sugar surface and creamy eggnog flavor.
Lemon Cake Roulade is Amen’s naughty Little Debbie snack with class. The melt-in-your-mouth lemon tang is bested only by the royal icing and blueberry compote (made with cinnamon stick and red wine) drizzled over the top. Did I mention fresh berries?
