Tis the season to cheat on diets, Fa-la-la-la-la, La-la-la-la! Each holiday season, many of us have the opportunity to try different types of sweet treats. Whether it be an office party or a holiday potluck dinner, you will come face to face with a variety of awesome sweets.
Don't go empty handed. An edible gift from Ivory LeShore's Gourmet Bread Pudding & Cheesecakes would be an awesome holiday addition to any gathering.
If you have a sweet tooth, then you will love this story. I recently had the pleasure of meeting Ivory LeShore III, one of Birmingham's most creative bakers and boy am I glad!
Ivory has been in the culinary world as a cook for over 20 years. Anyone who has cooked with the likes of Chef Franklin Biggs carries a lot of credibility in my book.
In January of 2014 he confidently made the leap of faith to start his own business. He is taking Birmingham by storm with his collection of signature desserts. The popularity of his products have received the attention of several retailers in the area, most notably V. Richard's market. The ingredients are clearly marked on each label.
In order to be able to convey to you exactly how good his products are, of course I had to face the difficult task of tasting them.
Here is a list of what I sampled:
The White Chocolate bread pudding- served warm, with soft, melted white chocolate in every bite.
The Sweet Potato w/ white chocolate mousse cheesecake-flavored with significant elements of sweet potato throughout.
The Reese's Peanut Butter Cheesecake w/ white chocolate mousse-a combination of creamy cheesecake, whipped with white chocolate mousse & Reese's candy baked inside!!!!!
Red Velvet Cake Cheesecake- Yes! I know it sounds insane and it also tastes insane! Insanely good that is. This cheesecake is topped w/ a cream cheese icing and pecans, with red velvet cake lining the bottom. OMG! This is one of those things you have to eat before you die!
And last but not least, the Alabama Goat Cheesecake w/ white chocolate mousse. It should be a sin for ANYTHING to taste this good.
These are only a few items from the collection.
Ivory LeShore's gourmet desserts can be found at the following retail outlets:
- Cowboys on 280
- Allen's Food Mart Exxon in McCalla Exit 1
- Shell on Highland Avenue
- Chevron on 150 across from The Embassy Suites
Ivory LeShore's Gourmet Bread Pudding and Cheesecakes offices are located at 3439 Lorna Lane, Hoover, AL.
