In darkest winter?
Talk to me about stews, or soups ... or comfort foods, tsar. Any comfort food will do.
Any thoughts on mashed potatoes?
A few years ago, the holidays were approaching and I was talking with a friend in Columbus from Norway. She almost teared up with joy when she was telling me about krokan (caramelized sugar with butter and almonds), a prevalent Scandinavian dessert and dessert ingredient said to have been the favorite dessert of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory author Roald Dahl. People loved our krokan-inspired ice cream so much that Brown Butter Almond Brittle moved quickly from Seasonal to Signature Flavor status.
Cherry blossom-scented, grass-grazed cream, with buttery Belgian white chocolate flecks, sugar syrup-plumped cherries, and roasted whole pistachios. Lovely cherry aroma blooms on the palate.
followed (soon) by stollen ice cream ...
