Cream of the Crop

Vegetables get a good licking when it comes to ice cream.

vegetables for dessert

Who said you can’t have vegetables for dessert? Head pastry chef Maxime Lebrun at Laurie Raphaël in Quebec City tops his Chantilly-cream banana split with parsnip ice cream (Raphaël’s Montreal eatery churns out beetroot and cucumber sorbet in season). Brooks Headley, executive pastry chef at New York’s Del Posto, juices only the greenest of celery stalks for a sorbetto paired with a dollop of goat cheese, breadcrumbs, mint, figs and shaved celery. And our hearts melt for the sweet potato ice cream spiked with cinnamon and studded with hand-torched homemade marshmallows from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in Nashville.
