The coolest holiday party accompaniments: Special sugar cubes, hot chocolate and meringue drops

13 Dec 2011, Posted by Niko in Dominique Ansel Bakery, Jacques Torres, Reviews

Enhance your coffee or tea experience - with these sugar cubes

How to make coffee, tea or expresso a 4-star experience at your party: The very best restaurants are always looking for ways to differentiate themselves and generally show off their fabulousness. Sometimes, just a small detail, such as serving artisanal decorative sugars with coffee or tea, can make for a memorable visit to a destination restaurant.  Why not employ the same strategy at your holiday party?

Chambre De Sucre - decorative sugar cubes

Jacques Torres wicked hot chocolate

The ultimate hot chocolate and the coolest accompaniment: You already have a few different kinds of Jacques Torres hot chocolate  warming on the stove.  You’ve also got some peppermint schnapps and (artisanal) marshmallows handy–you almost have everything. But what else can you offer to really separate yourself from the Martha-Stewart-watching masses?  How about a couple of sleeves of “Mini Me’s” from Dominique Ansel Bakery?   Mini-me’s are tiny meringue kisses that are flavored.  I recommend the peppermint (yes, even with the schnapps!)

Mini me's make a great accompaniment to any party spread

Jaques Torres has 4 locations in New York.  His website is here (don’t miss this very funny interview with Mr. Chocolate from last year).  Dominique Ansel Bakery is located on 189 Spring Street (Sullivan).  His website is here.
