Durango chefs offer ideas for Valentine’s Day desserts Recipes are sure to impress that special someone

Durangoans’ DIY recipes will impress that special someone
If you want to impress your date this Valentine’s Day, consider the advice of Durango’s food experts and cook up a dessert such as Baked Pears in Créme Anglaise, Dipped Strawberries or a Strawberry Chocolate Crepe.
Food has long been associated with Valentine’s Day, and cooking up an array of treats is sure to go a long way with your significant (or not-so-significant) other.
Chef Michel Poumay of Michel’s Corner recommends a Chocolate Strawberry Crepe to amorous home cooks looking for a sweet to make.
Animas Chocolate Company’s suggestion is relatively simple: Dipped Strawberries.
Ham and gruyere go well together as ingredients in a savory crepe for breakfast after a night of partying, says Michel Poumay.
Chef Dennis Morrisroe of Seasons Rotisserie and Grill says a loaf of sourdough from Bread Bakery can be used to create a bread pudding that will go well with baked pears.
Suggested wine pairing

Provided by Alan Cuenca, owner of Put a Cork In It“Sweet favors sweet,” Cuenca said. “Ironically, a sweet dessert needs a sweet dessert wine; the two cancel each other out on your pallet.
“I recommend pairing a Ruby Port with the ganache, and for the baked pears, I would do a Tawny port or a Sauterne, which is arguably the best dessert wine in the world. Sauternes feature notes of peach, apricot, clove and honey that complement tart fruit.
“For the savory ham and gruyere crepe – sparkling wine. Depending on your budget, you can get a good sparkling wine from Italy, Spain, California and even New Mexico. Personally, I would go big and do a true French Champagne. The acids will cut through the rich flavors and liven your pallet.
“Finally, I recommend a sparkling rosé to pair with the strawberries and chocolate crepe. A Cava from Spain or a Cremant d’Alsace with their touch of red fruits will pair well, and sparkling rosé in a glass is absolutely beautiful.”
