It's never going to win a James Beard award, but when I first tasted cookie dough ice-cream, I'd never have guessed that it'd be ubiquitous a decade later. And the inside-out approach has really worked for molecular cuisine. Heck, you don't even need a sous-vide machine.
I'd like to hear what readers think. Is this an abomination, or a delectable innovation? How would you tweak it, or is the thought of "dip for dessert" beyond the pale?
