RP & I went west to Northampton, MA last weekend to celebrate the marriage of two great friends. RP spent a summer there after college, so he knew his way around town and led us to Woodstar Café for a quick bite before the wedding festivities. Spoiled by living a stone’s throw from Block 11, I’m a sucker for good iced coffee. Woodstar Café did not leave anything to be desired! Their coffee, which almost had a cocoa quality, was outstanding! But what really stole the show was a little ruby-red dollop of compote that was served with our yogurt.
Usually, I’m a muesli-and-honey-with-my-yogurt girl, so this was a much-appreciated reminder of how perfectly compote pairs with rich yogurt. Then my mind started to wander, thinking of all the wonderful ways a compote can be used: mixed with yogurt, topped on ice cream, spread on toast as a jam, paired with cheese… the list is endless!
