Shortbread: The Delectable Dessert You Didn’t Know You Needed
By Marie Siracusa
Craving a decadent, sweet dessert? Perhaps the kind whose aroma and taste bring you back to childhood in a matter of seconds? Then the Shortbread Society is the answer you’re looking for. Founded by renowned chef, “Scottish Francis” Legge, Chef Francis brings his grandmother’s shortbread recipe all the way from Scotland (can’t get more authentic than that!). If you’re a food show fan, you may even know him from season five of Master
Chef. Named “Doughnut King” by Chef Gordon Ramsey, “Scottish Francis” certainly knows his way around dessert.
Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Shortbread Society released their featured flavor, Bailey’s Millionaire’s Shortbread. “We’ve added Bailey’s Irish Cream essence to our dark chocolate ganache in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, making it the ultimate Bailey’s Millionaire’s Shortbread. It’s the perfect addition to our original Granny Pearl’s shortbread and buttery Highland caramel!” Other popular flavors include Pistachio and Peanut Butter Cup. The shortbread is served in an 8.6” x 6.1” tray and can serve six people. Each tray of shortbread contains a unique flare of flavor with an irresistible, buttery texture.
To place an order, follow them on Instagram @shortbreadsociety. This is where you’ll find their latest menu of assorted shortbread and rules for pick-up. DM the account with your choice of shortbread and upon arrival, you will be warmly greeted by Chef Francis and his wife, Christine, who provide exceptional customer service from start to finish. They are quick to respond and will send very specific instructions on how to find the pop-up location. This is an experience you cannot miss. They also offer a new delivery option on Goldbelly.
