Tannat Ice Cream Dessert – yes, with Red Wine!


This dessert almost made me weep. I took a bite and was catapulted to a different world, with the light freshness of the ice cream with the Tannat based sauce with macerated berries….need I say more? It was spectacular.  And the almond cookie? Divine!

Yes, I totally misbehaved and had the entire dish….left the plate looking like new….can’t wait to go back and have another bite….unless I figure out how to make it myself!

Tannat Restaurant downtown Montevideo

In case you’ve never tried Uruguayan wines, you have got to try the amazingly delicious Uruguayan Tannat wine. During my Thanksgiving vacation, my Tia Neni invited me to the Tannat Restaurant, located downtown Montevideo, for a wonderful “merluza.”  What is that, you ask?  It’s a type of white fish, that accompanied with a grilled potato or side salad and just a smidgeon of fresh minty chimichurri, was absolutely outstanding!
