The Sweet Sensation
Posted: Monday, Apr. 22, 2013
Dining at Ballantyne Hotel & Lodges Gallery Restaurant? Save room for dessert. Keli Fayard, who moved to Charlotte last spring from Chicago after competing
in the Food Networks Cake Challenge, has created a menu full of sweet temptations. Weve done smaller portion sizes, clean presentations, and contemporary twists, says Fayard who is ready to see Charlotte mix in new flavors with the classics. And while shes passionate about pastry from pies to puddings, this season its the ice creams and sorbets she sees as standouts. Look for flavors like a mint chocolate chip with fresh mint infused into the milk and a tart and tangy key lime frozen custard. Were creating a more sophisticated take on the classics.
