Blueberry Cheesecake Shots
A celebration of the amazing berries available in BC. We began with homemade shortbread crumbs then layers of cream cheese mousse and blueberry compote. It was garnished with a mint leaf not just for colour but because the flavours taste great together.

Cranberry and pineapple are favorite flavors – so decided to marry the two flavors for a light but not too sweet dessert to follow Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners. Layers from bottom up are: rice infused with coconut milk and vanilla bean, lemon\pineapple jelly, cranberry/pineapple jelly, lemon/pineapple jelly, cream cheese/whipped cream flavored with clear vanilla.
