Whole Roasted Fig and Goat Cheese Ice Cream Dessert
Charlie Trotter brings us this utterly decadent dessert involving goat cheese ice cream, spicy roasted figs, and oatmeal tuiles. Goat cheese and figs are one of our favorite pairings, why not try it for dessert?
Figs and goat cheese are natural partners. The creamy, elegant tangy goat cheese perfectly contrasts with the full-flavored figs. In this dessert, a hot roasted fig acts as the bed for a scoop of intoxicatingly perfumed goat cheese ice cream, which melts into the fig to create a perfect sauce. Accompanying the roasted fig is a napoleon featuring crispy oatmeal tuiles layered with raw figs and a sating goat cheese cream. The fig juices and thyme leaves round out the dish nicely.
