Heather, who normally shies away from the executive chef role, surprised us with the first of not just one but three desserts she and Nalin brought to the Supperclub. This was a wonderful addition playing on the Eastern European theme by including beets, this time hidden in a luscious chocolate cake from Nigel Slater via David Lebovitz. The beets added an incredible moistness and lightness to the cake and paired well with sour cream (also very Eastern European).

Come back next week for the next of the decadent Spicebox Supperclub’s trio of Eastern European desserts!
