Brad has created a Dark Chocolate Curd, with Matcha Tea, Passion Fruit, and 24kt Gold, how delicious does that sound? Come dessert time, your sweetie will be surprised by the decadent treat brought straight to the table.

Orders will be taken by phone – You will also have the option to include a note when the dessert is served. *Please note that you do not need to pre-pay, only pre-order. This special dessert will be offered on Thursday, February 14 only.
