If i were a rich man, i would open my own little place to make an extraordinary restaurant where u can not eat anything else but desserts.
Yes yes yes… u can say, there are so many places where u can buy just sweets (i know proper restaurants or as they call themselves,`sweet bars` working in New York and Barcelona), BUT IM NOT TALKING ABOUT COFFEE AND CAKE SHOPS OR AFTERNOON-TEA PLACES, WITH JAM AND SCONES… no no no. Tidy little place with a few seats, warm atmosphere – but posh and spot on – i think this furnishing-part of the story would be Marti’s job, she can use her quite crazy imagination to create something absolutely individual fit into the idea of Cook’s Nest Heaven.
A small, tidy place hidden in a corner. U can find nothing, but desserts. I dont want to say sweets on purpose – not every dessert is sweet in my point of view. I would use everything whats available in good quality. No limit, not just local product – but obviously I wouldn’t buy my apple from Africa. I will be brave to use everything to create amazing flavor-combinations, especially lots and lots of vegetable. The vegetables secretly contain more sugar what u can imagine – just need to know how to lure out to show it.
The menu can change each day – if necessary, but preferable to leave for a while reaching perfection. Everyone can find the `big favorite`, a deconstructed old fashioned or a new crazy flavor-combo one. Up to You. And i would listen to you, your opinion about it, see if u lick your plate or leave a few bits… why? This is the most important, if i want to make u, customers happy, i should listen to your voice, not just my feelings.
