Anyone with allergies or food intolerances knows it’s tough to go out to eat. They probably also know that it’s even harder to get a dessert. Let alone a decent one.
I went to an all inclusive Sandals Resort in St. Lucia for my honeymoon in March of 2014, and one chef didn’t want to hear that I would be the only one to not have a dessert that night. He (somehow) figured out how to make a completely dairy-free strawberry shortcake. Now, I have multiple fruit allergies, but I’ve been able to eat strawberries without a problem. He took the time to listen to my allergies. To talk through what I liked, and he came up with the below dessert.
So I just wanted to give a shout out to him, because he really made that meal all the more special.
