    Quick set up:

    I own and run a small, mid market causual-fine dining restaurant.  We are an adjunct to a popular and somewhat ecentric art gallery.  My food program is tied to the gallery and tries to to have a "populist" vibe, fairly sophisticated food that is approachable and not too precious about itself.

    When it comes to desserts I am very much in the "cook's" dessert mode; icecreams, tarts, chocolate work etc.  We flip the desser options frequently.

    I have a new item that's going on the menu, a cookie sandwhich sort of affair.  Its a duo of dark chocolate cookie and a peanut butter cookie.  The filling is my issue, its a roasted peanut mokka sort of centre, texture similar to speculoos or a smooth fudge.  The flavour recalls a Coffee Crisp bar.  

    I am stumped for what to name the thing.  I usually go descriptive but this might get wordy.   I also feel I need to avoid too many industry terms (fondant, cremeaux, etc).  

    Any advise or suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Al

    What is the name of your restaurant ?  Add treat to it and you have one name. What is the name of the gallery ? do the same now and you have another unique

    name.

    Or have a naming contest among your guests.

    Good luck and let us know the name of the child so we all can come to the Christening /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smiles.gif

    That is very sensible...my internal pun generator has been ACTIVATED!

    The resto is called Picnic, the gallery is The Dart, btw.

    Since it's a duo, make that plural: Picnic Treats.

    Bake the cookies with lattice pattern and call them Picnic Baskets.

    FYI, I have decided to call this item "The Corsair."  Because when assembled they have a Pirate Cookie kind of vibe.  And french = fancy, ha ha!
