Artisanal Frozen Desserts

Dominique Ansel Revolutionizes Ice Cream With Sweet and Savory Flavors

— June 18, 2015 — Lifestyle
Dominique Ansel -- the creative genius behind such culinary delights as the Cronut -- recently unveiled two revolutionary ice cream flavors that blend together sweet and savory ingredients. Ansel's newest flavors revolutionize traditional soft-serve treats and include burrata and balsamic caramel varieties.

While the burrata ice cream flavor successfully blends creamy Italian cheese with a topping of fresh herbs, balsamic caramel is a more complex mixture that is infused with an artisanal hazelnut spread, an orange mist, sea salt and even a whole strawberry.

These luxe frozen treats are available at Dominique Ansel's SOHO bakery and are handmade in-house. As consumers grow more conscious of the ingredients that make up their meals, they are more likely to experiment with non-traditional recipes. These sweet and savory soft-serves are a great example of how traditional desserts are re-invented for the modern age.
Trend Themes
1. Sweet and Savory Combinations - Creating innovative flavors that blend sweet and savory ingredients in desserts opens up opportunities for reimagining traditional recipes.
2. Artisanal Frozen Treats - Handcrafted and high-quality frozen desserts made with unique flavors and ingredients are gaining popularity among consumers looking for a premium dessert experience.
3. Reinventing Traditional Desserts - Revolutionizing classic desserts by incorporating unconventional ingredients and flavor combinations appeals to consumers' desire for new and exciting culinary experiences.
Industry Implications
1. Food and Beverage - The food and beverage industry can capitalize on the trend of artisanal frozen desserts by offering unique and gourmet ice cream flavors that cater to consumer demand for high-quality and innovative desserts.
2. Hospitality - Hotels, restaurants, and other hospitality businesses can differentiate themselves by incorporating sweet and savory combinations into their dessert menus, providing guests with a memorable and unique dining experience.
3. Retail - Retailers specializing in premium and artisanal food products can tap into the trend of sweet and savory frozen treats by offering a range of unique ice cream flavors to cater to the growing consumer demand for gourmet desserts.
