Inspired by simple, high-quality ingredients; Chef Petrin aims to create delicious and approachable menu items that evoke fond childhood memories and allow guests to finish their culinary experience with a classic selection of dessert options, including Nightingale’s mouth-watering warm chocolate chip cookies. From Nightingale’s beloved dessert staples of salted caramel pot de crème with whipped crème fraîche, butterscotch and vanilla Breton; as well as the heart-warming chocolate fudge cake made with espresso gelato and cocoa nibs, guests are overcome with delicious ingredients as each bite tastes better than the last. For other decadent creations, order a selection of two desserts for the table and indulge in Chef Petrin’s flavourful carrot cake featuring candied pecan, cinnamon and cashew cream frosting; and the sweet and salty cheesecake mousse with blackberry and toasted walnut cookie. Summers fruitful flavours are highlighted in Chef Petrin’s new and refreshing dessert, local strawberries with ice wine verjus and vanilla chantilly; and an elegant chamomile pannacotta with ginger meringue and raspberries
