From the Pastry Dungeon: Sweet Corn Flan with Kettle Corn

Sweets Anna Markow 1 comment

This particular flan gets its flavor from summery sweet corn, infused and then blended into the milk. And what better way to garnish a caramelly, corny custard than with crunchy, gently spiced kettle corn and fresh berries? More

Excellent Homestyle Cuban Cuisine at Jose's in Bradenton, FL

Jamie Feldmar 11 comments

Crammed in to a narrow storefront on in a small Gulf Coast town, Jose's Real Cuban Food has a classic mom-and-pop luncheonette feel: a pixelated shot of owner Jose Baserva on the sign outside, no A/C, and a menu of killer homestyle Cuban classics from Baserva's family recipes. More

It's that time of year again, folks: Cinco de Mayo is here. Many of us associate this day with tequila and cheap Mexican beer—and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that—but there comes a point when you've got to put down the bottle and sober up with some spicy eats and then, as a finale, some Latin-inflected desserts. From sugar covered wedding cookies to a beautiful coconut tres leche cake, here are 10 options for your holiday table. More

Dulces: Flan de Caramelo (Caramel Flan)

Sweets María del Mar Sacasa 9 comments

I resisted writing about flan for a long time. "How stereotypical!" I thought. After the eye roll followed performance anxiety. There's an overwhelming amount of bad flan made, served, and somehow eaten every day. Bad flan, riddled with deep dimples, like a bad case of cellulite. Bad flan, undercooked and slippery, like a strange serpentine sea creature swimming down your throat. Good flan should have slight jiggle, but more along the lines of a trainer-tightened posterior than a waterbed. Good flan is minimalist and sleek, like an expensive silk blouse. More

Mixed Review: Jell-O Flan

Sweets Lucy Baker 14 comments

When I think of Jell-O, I think of things that are solidly American, such as no-bake cheesecake, instant chocolate pudding, and edible vodka shots. That's why I was so surprised to see a mix for flan on the supermarket shelf, tucked in between the boxes of more typical flavors like kiwi-strawberry and watermelon. How well could Jell-O pull off a traditional European dessert? I was curious to find out. More

Sephardic Desserts For Passover

Lia Bulaong Post a comment

Joan Nathan of the New York Times talks to Ana Benarroch de Bensadón, author of a cookbook of Sephardic dessert recipes. After Spain expelled its Jews in 1492, her family lived for centuries in Tangiers; she moved to Madrid with her husband in the 1960s after political instability in Morocco, and brought with her dishes that had all but been forgotten in Spain over the last 500 years, notable for how they combine their Jewish, Spanish and North African roots while still keeping kosher: No dish is as Spanish as a creamy flan. But hers is made with oranges, almonds and sugar, with no cream or condensed milk that would keep it from sharing a kosher table with meat... More
