Chocolate pot de crème at Table 209

Chef James King elevates chocolate pot de crème to a new level at Cape Coral’s Table 209. This dense French delight builds sensual layers of depth, blending Scharffenberger artisanal chocolate, aged Port wine and 40 percent heavy cream into a classic rich mousse. A Madagascar-vanilla tuile cookie adds crisply contrasting texture; the mixed berry coulis tempers the chocolate’s richness with a refreshing gardenfresh tartness. It’s accentuated with a hint of anise-fl avored basil, and you’ll savor each luscious spoonful. Table 209, 4721 Vincennes Blvd., Cape Coral, 549-4242, table209.com.
