No ordinary sorbet

This Sunday we celebrated my parents' 45th wedding anniversary at Cafe Allegre in Madison.  It's a lively, medium-sized restaurant just an exit away from Hamonassett State Park.  Good times were had by all, and I was pleased with their ability to accommodate my vegan needs, particularly for dessert.  My entree was a tasty concoction of portobello mushroom, white beans, olive oil, garlic and broccoli with a side of their delicious house marinara, but alas, it wasn't photo worthy. 

The dessert was another story:  a big heaping pile of lemon sorbet stuffed into a whole lemon, then frozen, and plated in this pretty presentation.  It was a refreshing end to a lovely meal.

What a neat presentation for a lemon sorbet! The next time that we dine at Cafe Allegre we'll have to try it.
