In Another World and Time. . .

Dearest Friends,
There is a beautiful but horrible, gorgeous but intolerable place, which is now very far away.
A place where José Andres lives.
On the last day we lived in this place, we ate at Café Atlantico, one of his restaurants.
The meal we had was beyond amazing.
These were the desserts we chose:

Pear & Pistachio Cake of pomegranate and poached pears, with pistachio sauce, chopped pistachios and pomegranate reduction

Pineapple-Lime Cake of pineapple mousse topped with pineapple-lime salsa, topped with caramelized Brazil nuts and black pepper, served with a scoop of Mexican sour cream sherbet (Pictures by Dear Mr. V)

Thank you Mr. Andres. You do not know us, but we would like to thank you for our last day of magic in Washington.

Betty & Victor


  1. Bonjour Betty,
    Both desserts look delicious, especially the Pear and Pistachio cake! Great shots Mr. V!
    Hope you are feeling well and having a good week my friend!

  2. Everything looks so delicious - love the sound of Pear & Pistachio Cake of pomegranate with poached pears - Divine. Here's to eating and enjoying. Happy weekend;-)

  3. Betty, it looks extrordinary! I can only imagine how delicious it was. :-) I am so happy to see you enjoying yourself and hoping your recovery goes well.
    Thank you so very much for the wonderful comment under my Chanel clogs post. I went a bit insane there for a bit, but back to normal happy self now waiting for my ticket to Paris instead. :-)))You are absolutely right: strawberry cheescake was far better choice than expensive Chanel clogs. Have a beautiful weekend, darling Betty!:-)


I am so very happy to read your comments!
