Desserts After Dark
Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival
Panther Island Pavilion

Fort Worth, TX 76102

The Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival is a three-day food spectacular including a BBQ Showdown, Main Event, Desserts After Dark, Rise +Dine and Burgers, Brews and Blues. The events are held at different venues in the Fort Worth area. I can’t think of a better way to end the week than by devouring a ton of sugar-laden delights. I headed over to Cowton for the festival’s “Desserts After Dark,” presented by the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation… time to enjoy something sweet and listen to some music!  Here are some of the lovelies. (My apologies for the grainy photos but it was desserts after dark.)

Bourbon Black Cherry Ice Cream with Lemon Waffle Cone Crisp and Black Cherry Coulis from Gypsy Scoops

Hurley House’s Whiskey-Soaked Carrot Cake

Roasted White Chocolate Custard with Caramelized Banana and Strawberry from Bonnell’s Fine Texas Cuisine

Espresso Cheesecake from Gold Ribbon Confections

Dough Boy Donuts‘ Faux Bread Pudding (Donut holes topped with TX Whiskey sauce and sprinkled with drunken raisins and cinnamon-frosted pecans)

Pecan Pie Truffles from Chef Evan Faris

Mariposa’s Latin Kitchen’s Plantain Pudding with a Lemon Sugar Cookie

Hungry? If not, check your pulse. The evening was the whole package: sweet treats, a beautiful location and kicking music. The 2018 dates are not confirmed, but keep an eye out because the tickets sell out quickly.
