I have been invited to a gourmet dinner party by a family friend. There is one problem: I have been assigned to bring a dessert and the hostess has requested that I bring a non chocolate dessert that will "knock her socks off" I have been invited to these before but have always brought chocolate desserts.
Can anyone give me an idea of a unique or difficult/knock-your-socks-off dessert idea that my hostess (who is AMAZING at cooking) will find impressive?
I have at my disposal basically every pastry/baking tool out there because the hostess says I can use her kitchen. She's one of those people who watches Food Network religiously and goes to upscale restaurants all the time.
(BTW she assigned me this task because I am taking some baking classes next year at a community college and I love baking)
I am just really bad at coming up with ideas for desserts
Thank you so much for your help!
