Alaskan King Crab, macarons and a chocolate meringue and orange chocolate ganache layered cake

Wow what a dinner we had this evening. Bron out did herself. This morning we went to Costco with the aim of getting some King crab. During the Summer, Costco has a pavilion set up for seafood. It looks like in the Winter this is not the case. We ended up finding some Alaskan King crab in the frozen food section of Costco.

When I got to Bron’s place this afternoon she was in the midst of macaron manufacture.

These are a jaffa flavour.

There is also some cointreau in the ganache.

For dessert Bron made a chocolate meringue layered with orange chocolate ganache topped with cream and raspberries.

After dessert I was still feeling peckish so had the last of the salted caramel chocolate Bron had made plus a macaron.

I now feel full and have strong garlic breath from the aioli.

  2. I’m starting to question if it might not be fattening to stop by and visit you Gary. Even though I hail from Nova Scotia in my darkest secrets I prefer king crab legs to lobster. Looks just right to me.

    • In tropical Australia, mud crabs are THE best crustaceans to enjoy. Having watched a little “Deadliest Catch” when I saw King crab in Costco I had to try them. They are fantastic.
