Our Story

Mother's Day: Pocketful of 'Rosy's'

When a friend visiting from California brought freshly picked (peak season!) strawberries as a gift, Chef Dave was inspired to share the love. His late grandmother, Rosie, was a huge fan of strawberry shortcake. So inspired, our tribute to mothers everywhere is called 'The Rosy.'

It features house-made strawberry (yes, the ones above!) jam sandwiched between two delicate, buttery shortbread cookies dipped in Valrhona 35% Ivoire white chocolate and decorated with edible rose petals. Bon appetit!

Available at The Market Line
