The head of the pastry program at the San Francisco eatery Lazy Bear uses Gothic Romanticism as inspiration for dessert creations. The idea for infusing a dark and eerie theme with a pleasant treat is the ultimate goal for this pasty chef.

While listening to punk rock music, this chef created a dessert called 'Coffee and Cigarettes,' which uses black sesame, cassis, cocoa and charcoal. This dish is not currently on the menu, however a similar one, which has not been named uses these same ingredients as well. This dessert is plated to look as though it was dragged through the dirt and sprinkled with soil.

Additional desserts that follow the Gothic Romanticism theme are featured regularly on the Lazy Bear's menu. All the dishes are created by the head pastry chef who finds the world of dark romance a culinary inspiration.
