Top 5 of Miami’s most special desserts for your Thanksgiving that support local chefs

Every year I look for the most special dessert for my family and I. As we know 2020 has brought massive layoffs to the restaurant industry. This year I’ll be doing my dessert shopping not from a big box retailer but, from a local chef who’s selling online. This year I’ve decided to support a local chef by ordering a dessert directly from them. Here are the top 5 desserts I’m choosing from this year and the chef I’m considering supporting.

1. Coconut Cake by Chef Alice

Put an Italian spin on this year’s Thanksgiving. Chef Alice Pandolfi is an Italian pastry chef and founder of The Organic Bakery from Rome, Italy. Her coconut cake is gluten free, dairy free, and low sugar.

2. Pineapple Poundcake Cake with Rum Glaze by Chef Fia

Chef Fia’s Pineapple Poundcake is everyone’s favorite tropical beverage turned into a scrumptious and easy pound cake! Chef Fia’s dessert is inspired by her time living in California.

3. Cinnamon Apple Pie by Chef Alice

If you’re looking for a classic Thanksgiving favorite. Chef Alice’s cinnamon apple pie is your go to this holiday season. Chef Alice’s homemade apple pie is inspired by her own story of not being able to eat dairy products or gluten when she was pregnant with her daughter Victoria.

4. Authentic Malva Pudding with Amarula Chantilly Sauce by Chef Tandzie

We can’t travel safely this year but, Chef Tandzie’s Malva pudding, also called malvapoeding or marshmallow pudding, is a traditional South African dessert. Since South African restaurants are a rarity overseas, you probably haven’t come across malva pudding until now. It is a sweet pudding recipe with a yellow sponge drenched in a decadent sauce.

5. Raw Lemon Strawberry Cheesecake by Chef Anna

If you’re not in the mood to put on a few pounds this Thanksgiving. Chef Anna’s raw cheesecake is for you. In case you were curious the raw food diet consists of uncooked food which is considered to be less toxic than cooked food.
