Kouign-Amann caramel aux pommes et au beurre salé. Kouign Amann Recipe. Is there anything more fabulous than something created through the wonder and miracle of caramelization?

Kouign Amann Recipe

Is there no means and ends that one won’t go to to experience that sigh with relief when one triumphantly pulls this perfectly-caramelized melange of butter, sugar, and salt out of their oven? I think not. Those butter-loving Bretons invented this unique gâteau for delivering the maximum dose of caramel: an all-encompassing dessert, which does double-duty at tea time. And I’ve been obsessed with figuring out how to make a perfect Kouign Amann, one of my favorite caramelized things in the world. And here are my results. I searched long-and-wide for Kouign Amann recipes, which are rare…either they’re really sketchy, assuming that no one will actually dare to make it, or they didn’t work at all and I was left with a wet, buttery mess.

Kouign-Amann caramel aux pommes et au beurre salé. Egg-Free Ice Cream. Andrew Scrivani for The New York Times A berry mélange is mashed.

Egg-Free Ice Cream

This was in the 1980s, when Häagen-Dazs and its ilk (remember Frusen Glädjé?) Became the standard for mass-market frozen decadence. Compared with the air-filled, sugary ice creams most Americans were buying, these egg-based ice creams were just better, with a higher fat content and a dreamy, mouth-coating, dense texture. Then recently, at The General Greene in Brooklyn, I tasted a honey vanilla ice cream that turned the richer-is-better paradigm on its head. That’s lucky for me, because The General Greene is one of several ice cream makers (including Blue Marble, the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, and Ronnybrook Farm Dairy) that are striving to put intensity of flavor and lightness of texture ahead of mouth-coating density.

Egg-free ice cream might be trendy, but it’s not new. The owners of Blue Marble in Brooklyn, Jennie Dundas and Alexis Miesen, vetoed eggs for an entirely different reason: economics. Best puddings. Recipe - Maple Spice Ice Cream. Basmati Rice Pudding. Banana with Parsley Dust. (2 votes, average: 3.50 out of 5) Loading ... It was molecular gastronomy chef Heston Blumenthal who, using molecular profiling, first discovered that banana paired well with parsley. This scientific method of food pairing is based on the principal that foods combine well with one another when they have similar molecular compounds in common. (go to “Food Pairing in Molecular Gastronomy”) When creating this recipe, I first tried combining the parsley dust with caramelized bananas but the flavor of the bananas was overpowering the parsley.
