Andrew Novick remembers five desserts featured in Sweet Tooth

Crazed collector Andrew Novick even collects food memories with his camera, and sometimes he shares them with the world, as he does with Sweet Tooth: 1000 Photographs of Desserts (that I ate), an exhibit that opens with a reception from 5 to 11 p.m. tomorrow at cupcake emporium The Shoppe.

We asked Novick to match some of the images with descriptions, but made him stop at five -- and not necessarily for his benefit alone. "This is fun!," he says. "I wish I had enough time to do this for all 1000 photos!"

Enjoy. And don't drool on your keyboard.

This is a super colorful and fruity dessert from Paxia in northwest Denver.  It is fruit+sorbets+tangy sauces -- and spun sugar on top. It looked and tasted amazing!

I received a pi pie dish for Christmas several years ago. I have consumed many many delicious pies while reciting the digits of pi!

In many other countries, they have the old fryers at McDonald's -- you know, like before they got all "healthy" here with the baked apple pies? Also, many countries have their own varieties of fried pies -- like corn pies in Thailand, azuki bean pies in Japan and  these pineapple and taro pies in China. I had a haupia (coconut pudding) fried pie in Hawaii, too!
