Sales, Menus and Recipes: April fool

28 March 2019  
Have an April Fool

You may know that a fool is an old style dessert, made with fruit and cream, sometimes of a custard like consistency but more usually fruit mixtures, cooked or not, folded into or layered with whipped cream. Now we would likely call it berries and cream. As recently as the 1920’s it was a favorite British dessert.

Apparently Martha Washington liked the custard variety.
