Some people say that a great dinner is not complete without a delicious dessert. We at The Art House think those people are right!
All of our dinners served at The Art House Supper Club, North Vancouver’s only secret supper club, include a delicious homemade dessert freshly prepared by our chef.
Our Hearty Italian Menu is our most popular meal, and we have tried multiple desserts to go with it since starting our supper club in May 2016. This spring, we found one which compliments this Italian feast perfectly: a light, espresso flavoured flan made with real coffee. This dessert is much lighter than our previous amaretto cheesecake, but fear not, if you book a private dinner and wish to get the cheesecake for your group instead, we are happy to oblige!
Our Light French Supper has one of my favourite sweets, a unique French dessert called “floating islands” made of a fluffy boiled meringue over a bed of creme anglais, topped with toasted almonds and burnt caramel. This multi-textured dessert is not only delicious, but also beautiful – and a real treat to your palate.
A newcomer to our menu this year, our family’s tasty tiramisu recipe has gotten raving reviews from our guests. Full of flavour and incredibly satisfying, but surprisingly light, this is the perfect dessert to top our filling Ossobuco Dinner. When we can, we often add seasonal berries to the tiramisu for an extra burst of flavour.
Another crowd favourite is our pistachio custard pie, served with our Mediterranean BBQ dinner. Incredibly creamy and full of flavour, topped with crushed pistachios for a crunch – this dessert never fails to impress our guests.
Our seafood dinner is complemented with a strawberry tart, a light sponge cake recipe from Germany that has been in our family for as long as we can remember. The sponge is topped with fresh strawberries and homemade gelatin, and we serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
If your party is too big for a sit down dinner, fear not… our tapas dinners ALSO include a variety of bite-size desserts!
Mini mango tacos with goats’ milk caramel, lemon cheesecake squares with berries, meringues with vanilla cream and red fruits, and coconut macaroons can all be ordered as part of your tapas desserts. We will also be serving these on our Art House White Night tapas dinner on the 21st of July 2018 – join us to taste them!
We like to switch up the desserts every so often, so returning guests will often have the opportunity to try new things. And if you miss your favourite, we are always happy to substitute the dessert on your menu with one of our old recipes, so you can have your cake, and eat it too.
