Cool Dessert Ideas for Gracious Southern-Style Entertaining

Southern Gourmet Desserts are Ideal for Entertaining

From Antebellum mansions with welcoming oak alleys to sweeping gardens perfectly tailored for garden parties, the South has always been known for its graciousness and hospitality. For generations, Southerners have embraced creative entertaining by hosting everything from elegant dinner parties with fancy desserts like Lemon Meringue Pie to fall football tailgating parties with easy-to-go desserts like Chocolate Fudge.

In fact, one of the ways Southerners really enjoy life is by tapping into their inner Scarlett O’Hara and throwing a fun and beautiful party. It might just be a small, impromptu get-together with close friends, or it might be a stylish dinner party with the entire extended family. Whatever the case, it’s an opportunity to reconnect with the people who matter the most.

Break out the elegant china you don’t use as often as you should, and tempt their taste buds with an amazing dessert or two while you’re at it. Admit it – not only is it fun to host a party, it’s fun to have your guests oohing and ahhing over your mouthwatering dishes.

That, my friends, is what Southern Gourmet is all about: giving you what you need to create amazing desserts based on secret recipes from an old Mississippi family with minimum hot kitchen time and maximum get-together bragging rights. Whether it’s one of their chocolate mousses, crème brulee, fudge dishes or pie fillings, we’re pretty sure you’ll have more than one person asking, “How did you make this?!” while they reach for a second serving.
