Last night at Sunday Company Dinner we had a bit of a debate. :-) One of our friends was bringing dessert, and decided on a trifle. The problem ensued when the search for a serving bowl came about. You could layer the contents of a trifle in anything- but if you put it in a vessel that's opaque and you can't see the layers, aren't you kind of defeating one of the purposes of a trifle? Part of the appeal of a trifle is seeing all those luscious layers- it's a very visual dessert! So our friend took the time to search out the perfect trifle dish, and it completely made the dessert.
What do you think?
It was stunning. We all were devouring it with our eyes before we even thought to sample it. It was a beautiful dessert and tasted fantastic as well! A lesson was learned too. Trifle really does deserve a special dish.
