Eye Candy: Parsnip Cake with Carrot Coulis, Chicory Coffee Gelato, and Quince

Parsnip Cake with Carrot Coulis, Chicory Coffee Gelato, and Quince

 

Even though they inhabit kitchens on opposite coasts, fellow Food & Wine Best New Chefs Jamie Bissonnette (who also took home the 2014 JBF Award for Best Chef: Northeast) and Jenn Louis are kindred spirits in food: both excel at delivering bold, daring flavors and are passionate locavores. At their recent Beard House dinner, the duo served this exceptional dessert: parsnip cake with carrot coulis, chicory coffee gelato, and quince. The combination of sweet and savory flavors wowed our guests—and it ain't too bad to look at it, either.
