Dessert Done Right: Florida Strawberry & Kaffir Lime Tart

Posted On January 29th, 2016

_DSC6627In honor of Florida Strawberry Month in January, I’d like to share a delicious recipe I collected last weekend during a weekend full of strawberry-themed events with the Florida Strawberry Growers Association and Sunday Supper bloggers. As part of the event, Birchwood Executive Chef, Jason Cline led a Chef Demo for a decadent Florida Strawberry & Kaffir Lime Tart in the Epicurean Theatre. His creation featured a gingersnap crust, coconut chantilly cream, strawberry sauce, a mini kick from chili threads and finished off with a sweet-strawberry-lime dust.

This dessert was the perfect mix of tangy and sweet with fresh Florida strawberries! It was so delicious, which got me thinking … how could I keep such a wonderful recipe to myself?
