"Dessert is probably the most important stage of the meal, since it will be the last thing your guests remember before they pass out all over the table." ~ William Powell
March, already? Where did February go? Time is flying (use of personification)!
An obligatory plate shot to tease and tantalize taste buds......
My dessert: Bread Pudding with Bourbon Caramel Sauce (served in style with a side of delightful ice-cream and whip cream - oh, my!
The guys' dessert (not shown): "Delta Delight" - a Moist Yellow Cake Mixed with Cream Cheese and Pecans topped with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
We dined here for the "Mother's Day Brunch" and feasted on delicious and mouth watering Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Maple Syrup and Belgian Waffles.
I am a very picky eater and meticulous cook. I love, love, love a mouthwatering delicious bread pudding; but since the death of my beloved grandmother in 1985, I have only found two places that cook bread pudding that's comparable to hers - this restaurant and a place in Madison, Mississippi that I can call and request that they prepare six slices in separate take-out containers ready for me to pick up and take home (whenever I am in the area).
"Giardina’s, one of the Mississippi Delta’s most historic restaurants, was founded in 1936 by Joseph Giardina, in Greenwood, Mississippi. A unique blend of sophistication and warmth, Giardina’s is the perfect setting for any event. Seating consists of fourteen private booths and the large dining room opens onto a beautiful courtyard. The restaurant’s interior space and state-of-the-art kitchen were designed by world-renowned architects. Considerable effort was made to retain the character and charm of the original Giardina’s, but the white tablecloths, fine crystal and premium Viking cutlery add the feeling of elegance one would expect from a fine dining restaurant in a large metropolitan area. Giardina’s bar, reminiscent of a bygone era, features the same dark wood and tile of the restaurant while offering today’s premium liquors, wines and liqueurs. Featuring steaks, seafood and Italian cuisine, Giardina’s atmosphere is old world elegant but dress is laid-back “Delta casual.”
