Dessert favorites

Chef Alaun has some amazing desserts being featured at Julia’s.  Let’s take a peek.

First off, the Fromage du Jour, paired with a sweet jam and a warm baguette.

This choice is perfectly French and lovely for those that desire something a little different and not overly sweet.

cheese

Cheese types rotate frequently, but rest assured, Chef has amazing taste and a notable creative flair, so you will end your meal on a delicious note.

Next up is our Orange Polenta Cake

Kumquat

This wonderful cake uses poached kumquats and has a side of brown butter ice cream.  Cue the mouth watering my friends.  This one is a must try.

For our chocolate lovers, you can’t go wrong with the Chocolate Pot de Créme.

It is accented with an almond crumble and lavender chantilly.  Perfection.

It is all quite divine with crème pâtissière and mascarpone chantilly.

Rounding things up and true to French form, is a delicious cheese plate.

We all knew Chef Alaun would have amazing things up his sleeve for Bastille Day.

If you are not familiar with this French holiday, it commemorates the beginning of the French Revolution with the Storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789.
