Best Signature Dessert — Best of Vail Valley 2019
1, Sweet Basil
3. The Rose
Vail gets a little sweeter every time you have a taste of the Hot Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake at Sweet Basil. This staple on the dessert menu has been delighting guests since 1998. The combinations of brown sugar, rum, ice cream and peanut brittle continue to tantalize taste buds season after season.
“The dessert is actually a very old recipe, re-created and embellished with a decadent rum sauce,” explains executive chef and partner Paul Anders. “I think the dessert is delicious, but because of its longevity, it has carved out a place in peoples’ experience within Vail. Just like a favorite run on the mountain, or hike, fishing hole etc. — the Sticky Toffee is part of their memory and leaves the visit incomplete without it.”
