sorbets at Fauchon

mt | Jun 26, 2003 01:02 PM

after seeing the Sheller photo exhibit and Central Park original competition drawings at the Met I was strolling down Madison Ave (felt like I was in LA - cell phones, chunky jewelry and watches, etc) and passed Fauchon. I thought to myself I probably can't even afford a cracker in this place but I can at least take a look. Surprisingly - there were a lot of affordable, reasonably priced goods. I decided to get 3 scoops of sorbet - $4.50. They have numerous unusual flavors - peach lavender, rose petal, etc. I tried mango ginger, which finished nicely with a fresh ginger taste; raperberry chilie, the raspberry was juicy and thick and the chile tasted like roasted serrano but without the heat (I know that sounds strange) and lemon basil, which I liked very much. Also, they were very generous scoops - not melon ball size. The only quibble - I had to eat my sorbet with sample spoon. Yes it made my sorbet last longer but a little nerve racking when trying to walk and dodge mr. & mrs. oblivia...
