These sweet and slightly spicy corn cakes may not have the same sought-after elasticity of classic Thai fish cakes, but the sweetness of the corn and the crispiness sure make up for it. More

Scooped: Kaffir Lime and Gin Ice Cream

Sweets Max Falkowitz 2 comments

This is the full, pure flavor of kaffir lime distilled into ice cream form. Intense, but rounded out by dairy and eggs, perfect for scooping over warm peach pie (peach and lime is a combination that doesn't get nearly enough love). But as long as we're talking about distilling flavors, let's talk about gin, which at its core is an extraction of a bouquet of herbs and spices that conveniently go quite well with limes of all forms. I don't know of a gin infused with kaffir lime leaves, but I'll readily make a gin and tonic with them. And I'll even more readily make ice cream with the pairing. More

Kaffir Lime and Gin Ice Cream

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz Post a comment

Kaffir lime leaves are somewhat hard to come by but well worth the effort. You can find them in Southeast Asian markets, either refrigerated or frozen. This ice cream is just begging to crown a warm, toasty fruit cobbler in need of a perfumed, citrus element. More

Scooped: Kaffir Lime, Ginger, Star Anise Sorbet

Star anise contributes more depth of flavor, elevating this from a citrusy ice to something more exotic. You don't need much, and it doesn't need to steep for very long to impart its flavor. The coconut water base is subtle and anise easily overwhelms everything it touches. But when your flavors are balanced, you'll be rewarded with a dessert that's bright and exotic, with a tinge of gingery heat and a kiss of licorice sweetness. More
