Dominique Ansel will run an ice cream truck in the Hamptons this weekend
Dominique Ansel, the madcap pastry chef behind the cronut craze and insane desserts like frozen s’mores, will dole out canned sundaes from his pop-up ice cream parlor in the Hamptons on Saturday, August 2.
The $15 Warhol-inspired tab-top soup cans are first lined with chocolate sauce, then filled with scoops of root beer ice cream and whipped mascarpone semifreddo, topped with macerated cherries, honey-toasted marshmallows and mini meringues, then finally sealed and frozen. After ordering, you’ll have to crack the top and peel back the lid.
The hefty price tag (okay, so it’s not Hamptons-hefty, but still) benefits City Harvest, which will receive 20 percent of the mobile sweet shop's proceeds. Find the truck on Ocean Ave at Main Beach from noon to 1pm and then in front of fashion designer Lisa Perry’s boutique on Main Street at 2pm.
If you want in on the hype, head to the Hamptons now—because we bet there’s already a line. Otherwise, hit up one of the city’s new scoop shops.
