Sure, it sounds like a random idea. But it's not. Chef Dominique Ansel, the inventor of the cronut and the chocolate chip milk shot, knows what he's doing. His research led him to the invention of Crème de la Corn. It's made with an ear of unshucked corn grilled with butter and soy sauce. On top is a swirl of Ansel's own Caramel Sweet Corn-flavored soft serve ice cream which is itself topped by caramel and a few kernels of corn.
What does it taste like? Kay of Rocket News 24 tried Ansel's latest confection. She says:
The caramel and corn in the ice cream were certainly a winning and sweet combination! And along with the corn jam, the ice cream was like a cold, frozen form of pure corn and sweetness — certainly a great treat for the hot summer.
But what’s brilliant about this Crème de la Corn is that it’s not over when you’ve finished eating the ice cream. You have the grilled corn cob on the bottom which is essentially an edible ice cream cone!
