This week's dining review features Flyte World Dining & Wine, which, like a fine wine, appears to be improving with age.

Of all the flights of fancy on my recent visit, one soared above the rest: Hot Smoked Cocoa. Pastry chef Erica Waksmunski smokes the cocoa powder, which infuses the thick warm drink with the woodsy smell of a campfire among the pines. Served with a bruleed fluff of housemade marshmallow and housemade Graham crackers, the s'mores-inspired dessert is my idea of roughing it.

Meanwhile, homemade marshmallows are popping up everywhere, from the pink marshmallow on the beet salad at Flyte to the sweet potato ice cream dessert at Five Senses. (By the way, that Murfreesboro restaurant is the subject of the upcoming dining review.) Where else have you found homemade marshmallows worth talking about?
