Home » Dessert Menu
Fore Street's pastry cooks prepare a daily dessert and cheese menu with the same attention to quality and seasonality that make our dinner menu remarkable.
Our desserts are made from exceptional ingredients, including great New England butter and Maine cream, locally produced organic eggs, and the berries and orchard fruits for which Maine is famous. Strawberries from Merrymeeting Bay appear in late June, and we pick them every day during their short season. Bowdoinham rasperries arrive in July, followed by high-bush and 'wild' blueberries. In August, if the deer stay away, we might receive a few bushels of peaches from a friend in Dresden. Apples and pears ripen in October and November, and remain on our menu until early spring. These exceptional ingredients appear in countless preparations.
We also prepare desserts from fine chocolates, including our signature Chocolate Souffle Cake and our Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte. Our hand-dipped chocolates are available boxed to take away.
All of our ice creams, sorbets, and gelati are made in our own kitchens.
Our dessert menu also includes a selection of artisan cheeses from Maine and New England, and from away.
