Oh my goodness my mouth is watering. Everything sounds amazing. Diners at your restaurant have a very dificult decision. What fun!
I love the truffle idea instead of the biscotti. Are you going to serve them at the Bat Mitzvah. I would seriously consider it. This is the kind of touch guests will remember.
If I were dining at your restaurant for Thanksgiving I would order the sampler in a second if it included something chocolate.
As for the clafouti, given the description you wrote I wouldn't order it when everything else sounds so good. Do you have a desert plate the servers bring around? A visual might help. Also, keep in mind that while servers can't remember long sentences, diners can't sustain their focus!
Sounds like you are doing an amazing job in an area that you did not plan on working in but have a talent for.
You know that is illegal; you must be paid for all the time you work. Your restaurant could be liable (fined, and forced to pay all back wages). Be very careful- plus, don't give away your labor!
I can think of numerous profdessions where people work more hours than they are paid for. I am impressed by Zilla's commitment to her job.
Finally, I would love reheating instructions, not just for dessert but the whole meal as well. As someone with a small appetite I tend to take home leftovers often. Reheating can be an artform, and suggestions would be great. I think it says something about your caring nature to think of this.
I am enjoying following your adventure!
