Luscious! This was the finale of a birthday dinner with friends last night. The ingredients give it such a complex flavour and balance each other out perfectly. It complemented the vanilla ice cream perfectly, but it's so darned good I can't wait to try it over something else...lightly poached pears, maybe? :) Thanks for the great recipe.
