Amuse Bouche

He insisted that we mark the occasion of our first week on the job by indulging in the White House’s signature desert (sic), the Chocolate Freedom, a brownie cake that oozed hot fudge and was topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. That easy year - campaigning, resigning, marrying, getting pregnant, and relocating to DC - had been a whirlwind, and we were finally pausing to celebrate. We clinked our dessert spoons as if they were champagne glasses and luxuriated in the sudden calm.

from The Education of an Idealist by Samantha Power (2019). Very Highly Recommended.
