Congratulations, Chef Erika Davis

Congratulations to pastry chef Erika Davis on winning for her dessert interpretation of the classic alcoholic libation, the margarita. It was subtle. It was cocktail-y. Although she realized she was one dessert short when it came time to plate, her on-the-fly solution of slicing the existing desserts in half was a real winner - not only was the portion size appropriate, but the inner layers could be appreciated better that way.

We hope to see more great desserts from this pastrycheftestant in the future.

She deserved to win it, made me want to dive into the TV and taste it! Salt n lime n tequila in a dessert?! I'm in!

La Diva's got it right! Erika's dessert sounded like something I'd love to taste, and an excellent approach to this week's challenge!

I thought she looked familiar, then remembered she was at the Veggie U Food and Wine Celebration in Milan, Ohio this year and last. I can attest to the fact that her desserts were delicious. And she was very gracious. Congrats, chef.
