Arizona Grand Resort Offers New Dessert-To-Go Menu for Holiday Season
Resort’s gourmet desserts are convenient alternatives to hours of do-it-yourself baking for the holidays
PHOENIX, Ariz. – (November 16, 2009) – Arizona Grand Resort aims to make the holiday season run smoothly for families this year by offering its new Dessert-To-Go Menu. The new line of desserts are perfect for those who look forward to the season’s sweet indulgences, but don’t have the time or inclination to spend hours in the kitchen baking for themselves. The new menu will be offered through the Marketplace Café and available for ordering from November 16 to December 22.
Executive Pastry Chef George Rugel has developed a line of mouth-watering desserts* described as “classics with a twist.” His new take on cheesecake becomes Chocolate Pumpkin Marble Cheesecake with an Oreo Cookie Crust ($22.00) while apple pie turns into a delectable Deep Dish Apple Pie with Citrus Butter and Cranberries ($18.00). Chef Rugel also offers a contemporary version of a traditional Yule log consisting of a Brandied Cherry Yule Log with Chocolate Butter Cream and a thin layer of Chocolate Ganache ($20.00). Other tempting items include a Carrot Pecan Cake with Citrus Cream Cheese Frosting ($22.00), a Whiskey Pecan Tart ($18.00) a spiced Pumpkin Pie with Cinnamon Whipped Cream (16.00) and a Flourless Chocolate Torte ($22.00) for those looking for a gluten-free option.
