TASTE at SAM makes another artful nod to comfort food this month by introducing a strawberry trio dessert that includes a homemade popsicle, a chewy fruit roll-up, and a coffee cake shortcake with chilled crème fraiche.

The popsicle is made old-school style, with strawberry juice poured into a shot glass and frozen upside down; the fruit roll-up is simply pureed strawberries rolled flat and baked (sans the high-fructose corn syrup); and the coffee cake is stuffed with macerated fruit and sweet cream.

Pastry chef Lucy Damkoehler premiered the dessert last week, and will serve it through strawberry season.
