My husband just turned 30, so while we were in Jackson, his sister ordered him an amazing dessert from world-famous chef, Oscar Ortega. He is the executive chef and owner of Cioccolato, in downtown Jackson, which has every sort of chocolate dessert you can think of in beautiful display cases. Ortega and his staff work right behind the counter in full view so you can see them crafting their wonderful creations.

Brian loves coconut custard pie more than any other dessert on the planet. Obviously, the dessert was not a traditional one, but Ortega made his own version, which was very much like a Boston creme pie with coconut and pineapple filling. I can't describe how amazing it was. It looked like it would be far too rich, but since it was dark chocolate, it was really perfect. I'm salivating just remembering it.


  1. That is one gorgeous cake!
    Happy birthday to your hubby!

  2. Okay so that puts my 5 minute cake in a mug to shame...lol! Looks like a little taste of heaven!
