Restaurant Hospitality - 10 Instagram-worthy desserts

Guests instinctively reach for their camera phones when these desserts hit the table.

There are currently more than 28 million delicious and awe-inspiring photos on Instagram with the hashtag #dessert. The more fantastic a photo, the more apt it is to be liked and passed along to others, which is the ultimate goal of the poster, and some of the best flattery for a pastry chef.

Creating the perfect panna cotta takes a bit of trial and error, according to chef Mel Toledo at Foundation Social Eatery in Atlanta, which offers a different panna cotta each season. “Panna cotta is a dessert that has the ability to morph into different versions, so we offer a different variety each season,” Toledo said. “For the chocolate panna cotta with chocolate-peanut butter ganache, peanut butter cookie crumble and coffee merengue, we wanted something that had classic pairings. Chocolate and peanut butter go perfectly together, and everyone loves coffee with dessert.”
