Good morning, friends! Another Wednesday, another edition of the Bread Pudding Challenge! Who’s ready to talk about dessert?
This week, I went to Harvest. This fancy-pants restaurant is located in the heart of Richmond Heights, and is well known for their bread pudding. So well known, in fact, that when I asked for your feedback on which bread pudding is your favorite, many of you responded with Harvest! The crowd speaks, and I listen.
I was very impressed with the interior of Harvest. So gorgeous! Warm lighting, gorgeous décor – this place has it all.
Enough of the scenery; I was here for one thing and one thing only: bread pudding! Harvest’s Warm Brioche Bread Pudding starts with a thick hunk of rich bread. Add a few currants, bourbon sauce, and whipped cream, and you get…well, you get this:
Looks pretty, right? Well, as we all know from last week’s disaster – looks aren’t everything.
Thankfully, this bread pudding was fantastic. Fantastic! Texture-wise, it was perfect. It had the consistency of french toast. Not as firm as the bread pudding at Remy’s, but not custard-like like the stuff at Café Eau. This was right in the middle, and I loved it.
The bourbon sauce was delicious as well! I would have preferred it a bit thicker, but now I’m just being nit-picky. Truth be told, it was quite delicious.
My only gripe? I’m not a big fan of currants. Thankfully, they weren’t in the bread pudding itself; just the sauce. So they were easy enough to pick around. But next time I’ll ask them to leave the currants out.
All in all, this bread pudding was delicious. It’s some of the best I’ve had so far! This competition is going to be tough, I tell you!
See you next week with more bread pudding madness.
