I just got back from an awesome meal at a churrascaria we were trying out, since the one we used to go to closed its doors (to our dismay). The meal was great, but the interesting part was the dessert. When we got the list, I asked my friend that was with us (who is 1/2 Brazilian) what "walnut cream" was. His eyes bugged out and he looked at the menu to verify that they had it. Apparently, it's a traditional dessert that doesn't get made very often in any restaurants (I'd certainly never heard of it). He said, "It's exactly what it sounds like." Since I love walnuts, I decided to give it a try. It was basically a metric ton of chopped walnuts in a suspension of a light chocolate mousse. Man, was it tasty.
