How many ingredients can be combined together without the overall flavor getting muddied up (the artist's equivalent of mixing every paint color together and getting a "palette grey")? Well, the answer is it depends on the ingredients, and how well balanced they are. For example, a good sauce or soup might contain the essence of many things.

Today's miniature dessert was composed of a small vanilla scoop of ice cream, with a dollop of dark chocolate fig and orange sauce, topped with crunchy green pistachio nuts.

The chocolate was a piece of a Trader Joe's (Monrovia, CA) Peru 60% Dark Chocolate bar, melted with fig and orange. The resulting chocolate and fig sundae was a blend of sweet, smoky, floral, citrus, fruity -- light, bright and dark -- flavors. I savored every tiny bite.

Today was the last day of Chocolate and Fig Theme Week.
