Waffogato by Dominique Ansel


  • Waffogato

After the Cronut™ and the Milk & Cookie shot, Dominique Ansel introduces his newest creation the Waffogato. The Waffogato is a combination between a waffle and the classic Italian dessert affogato. Affogato is made of vanilla ice-cream topped with a hot shot of espresso, one of his favorite desserts. The chef wanted to create a dessert served during breakfast and came up with the Waffogato: a combination of sweet, salty and bitter. It’s not actually a waffle but Tahitian vanilla ice-cream in the form of a waffle made with bits of Belgium waffle, pearl sugar for the crunch and a little sea salt. The ice cream is topped with hot maple syrup spiked espresso. Tapioca pearls release from the waffle when it melts and give the dish more texture. The Waffogato will be sold in his bakery from Friday, 9 May.
