As important as culinary innovation may be, it is also important to recognize the classic desserts that place such new ideas in context. Michael Laiskonis, creative director at ICE held a class on Friday where iconic dishes were studied, deconstructed and rearranged with new flavor combinations and presentations as homage to the original.
The recipes included Tarte Tropezienne, Paris-Brest, Saint-Honoré, Financier, and Crème Brulée. The four hour class was action packed with students mixing, baking, tasting and plating.
