The Greenhouse Tavern's Seven Layers of Heaven

Justin Chapple

If ever there were a perfect centerpiece dessert, The Greenhouse Tavern's Dobos Torte would be it. This lofty tower of tender cake and luscious chocolate buttercream is made even more awesome by a meringue exterior, which is torched like baked Alaska to lend a surprisingly light texture and striking appearance. Also, it could practically feed an army, so it's perfect for large gatherings. This recipe won't be available until December, but in the meantime, Tyler Florence's Towering Coconut Cake is great for the weekend.

If you have puff pastry in your freezer and some ripe fruit, there's really no excuse NOT to have dessert. All it takes is 15 minutes to roll out and cut the dough, slice some fruit and tuck it into the pastry. Thirty minutes later, it's baked and bubbling and awesome with some vanilla bean ice cream and a glass of chilled, sparkling moscato. SEE RECIPE »

Rice paper wrappers are a fantastic, low calorie vehicle for all types of otherwise sandwich-appropriate foods. Pulled pork, chicken curry, tofu scramble, turkey club, etc., can all be wrapped in these lovely little papers that get softened in warm water. I happen to love mixing classic Vietnamese flavors (mint, fish sauce, cilantro) with easy access ingredients like deli roast beef and coleslaw mix. It's a substantial meal, but on the light side—perfect with a frosty cold Hitachino beer. SEE RECIPE »
