Raspberry Cheesecake Parfait

The Harvest Buffet at Cache Creek is okay. The entrees are average at best, but their desert bar is pretty damn good. They serve real Dreyer's ice cream (not self-serve soft serve), a Bananas Foster that you'll probably get drunk from, and my newest desert god -- the Raspberry Cheesecake Parfait.

This isn't just a regular slice of cheesecake, as you can see it comes served in a classy wine glass (also note the classy photo my sis took above; it's got glass-warped old people in the background). This elegant three-layer presentation of raspberry reduction, whipped cheesecake, and graham crumbs puts all other cheesecakes to shame.

Executives at The Cheesecake Factory are probably yelling obscenities at each other for not thinking of this. So the next time you're at the Creek, before you blow all your cast at the Wheel of Fortune slots, hit the buffet and get one of these.
