"A spontaneous lunch at Piccolo Restaurant and Wine Bar in North Hobart yesterday was a very welcome treat after a hectic month. We enjoyed fantastic entrées, mains, wine and service but my husband's dessert was something else. He chose the honey panna cotta with spice-poached quinces, cinnamon yoghurt foam and honeycomb. Not only did it look wonderful but he pronounced this dish the best dessert in the world. After being permitted a small sampling, I agreed and had to order one for myself. We would both be so grateful if you could ask chef Alex Jovanovic to share his sublime creation."
