Volcano Flambé

'Let Them Eat Flaming Volcano Dessert'

Jennifer S. Altman for The New York Times

Old news, but still had a paper piece about it on my desk... I guess I somehow got inspired by Easter.

Volcano Flambé is a very special dessert. A collaboration between artist Marina Abramovic and Park Avenue Winter’s executive chef, Kevin Lasko, the Volcano Flambé turns the dessert course into a performance piece.
Described as a riff on Baked Alaska, the Volcano Flambé features almond cake, chocolate ice cream, banana mousse, meringue and chocolate cookie crumbs—all topped by a swirl of golden spun sugar. Mjammm...

For just $20 you get a lab coat to wear, a glass of water, a fork, a spoon, and a napkin, and a wooden box. Inside the box there is an MP3 player and headphones. Through the headphones, you hear Marina Abramovic telling you to close your eyes and breathe. “Close your eyes…Breathe slowly, deeply…”

Artists Janine Antoni, Paul Ramírez Jonas, and Michael Rakowitz will work with Lasko on dishes in the coming seasons.
