Neal, the manager of The Kling House Restaurant, shared this delectable dessert recipe with me. It sounds great and uses rhubarb, so in my book it is a winner. I also love angel food cake. Try it at your next dinner party. If you are making it for the family – don’t mention the rhubarb to the kids. Be sure to mark your calendar for the Kitchen Kettle Village Rhubarb Festival, Friday & Saturday May 15th & 16th.
