Pastry chef Dominique Ansel was quick to catch on to one of LA’s hottest food trends! And from the looks of it, the rage over avocado toast doesn’t seem to be dying down anytime soon.
Ansel is well known for taking average foods and turning them into mouthwatering trends like the notorious Cronut (a croissant-doughnut). When brainstorming his next concoction, he was inspired by one of the most popular foods in California – an avocado! Now that he had a muse, what could he make that was sweet, savory, and unique as well as something that would be cold and refreshing enough to compliment West-Coast weather?
You guessed it… an ice cream version of avocado toast, of course.
Ansel’s creation begins with homemade avocado ice cream that is sliced and twisted into a pastel green rose. The ice cream is placed on the “toast” which happens to be a large sugar cookie and is then sprinkled with a bit of raspberry powder and topped with a bit of dragon fruit. Olive oil is drizzled atop the dessert finishing off the distinctive masterpiece.
If you plan on visiting the Dominique Ansel Bakery in the quest of avocado toast in its dream form, do yourself a favor and order a cup of hot chocolate which includes a blooming marshmallow on the side – you won’t be disappointed.
