  1. Wow Kris!
    My mouth is watering, it sounds delicious! Good luck with the contest… if your dessert tastes as good as it sounds then I'm sure you've got a good shot at those flights to Hong Kong.

  2. I made a dessert especially for this contest. My theory is that the dessert should be have a mix of asian and western flavors. Also since CP is known for being a premium airline, the dessert should have a touch of name brand decadence. So I added in Champagne. In fact I used the same Champagne that is served on Cathay's flights (Krug).

    So my entry is:
    Chai Tea Cheesecake w Almond Ice Cream and a Champagne Asian Pear Coulis.

  3. It is a cool contest isn't it? Have any ideas what kind of dessert you're going to whip up for them?
