Although I haven't dined at Sens yet, Shuna knows with 100% certainty, I am sure, which of her desserts I would choose, if I had to pick just one. Otherwise I would want to try them all, with the exception perhaps of the one solitary offering which doesn't push many of my dessert buttons.

Icy bright, baby. Just the words alone.

I went to a large dinner party years ago where the host tried to guess our "muffin" types. (Remember muffins?)

She got me wrong. Lemon/poppy seed, indeed!! Nuh.

How interesting! I love doing this! It reminds me of chocolat, when she always knew what people would enjoy. I kind of hoped that would happen when I went to sahugan (sp?) in Portland!

I really love it when I can have a little taste of lots of things. My favourite dessert place, michele coulon does delectable mini desserts so I can try a few. Mmm

I always win at this game with my family...
But more importantly...I LOVE the new photos for "In Season."

Mmm, you've brought back memories of all those delicious desserts we ate. Shuna, I said it then and I'll say it again -- you're amazing. Rachel didn't mention it, but the cumin pot de creme was the unexpected hit of the table.

I love the idea of food typing -- I never had a name for what i did informally with people. But I'd like to think no one could reliably predict what I'll order after dinner, as I like pretty much all desserts, plus cheese plates, and it all depends on what I had for an entree and what I'm in the mood for.

I second Aaron -- new photos for "In Season" are gorgeous, and it's a brilliant idea.

an appropriate quote-

"I come from food the way some people come from money.
Food was the medium I grew up in, what we talked about,
what shaped our days." Elizabeth Mccracken

Steven and I play this guessing game with each other all the time on menus.

For desserts, though, he's easy -- chocolate all the way. The challenge only comes when there's more than one chocolate dessert available.

Me, I'm capricious. But he's still a good guesser.

What a great post! I love reading menus and seeing what other people are ordering. Its sometimes easy to see peoples mood when they are enjoying food:-))
