French super-chef Dominique Ansel isn’t new to the innovation game. He’s the guy responsible for the Cronut® after all, as well as killer riffs on existing bites, like the DKA kouign-amann (a buttery, flaky Breton cake) and the Welsh-rarebit croissant. New to the DA arsenal is his most outlandish creation yet: the kiwi sorbet bar.
It’s pretty much as it sounds. Under the milk-chocolate skin is, apparently, an authentically fuzzy kiwi-skin texture (which sounds, er, good?) filled with kiwi sorbet, vanilla ice cream and poppy seeds. Promising flavours aside, it looks quite uncannily like a violently flattened fruit, and for that alone Ansel should be commended.
The kiwi sorbet bar is available at Dominique Ansel’s London flagship in Victoria, and costs £6.
Good GRIEF is it hot or what? Cool down with one of London’s best ice creams.
