I always love a good dense chocolate torte after a heavy meal. There is no sense in having something light after a heavy meal, just keep eating delectable things! I also had a bottle of Rosa Regale- sparkling red wine- that pairs perfectly with chocolate, another reason why I made the cake. See the link below so you know what to look for this weekend at the liquor store.
No dessert is complete without whipped cream, heck even if it's from a can it will satisfy you. Raspberry gastrique folded into whipped cream creates a little bit of tang on the chocolate suffocated palate. A gastrique is one part sweet and one part sour, so with the addition of an acid in the gastrique- like lemon juice or white balsamic vinegar- and a splash of port it makes for a less fatty mouth-feel.
