Miso Butterscotch Sundae

JBF Award Winner Christina Tosi
Momofuku Milk Bar, NYC

Christina Tosi first created the unusual, slightly savory topping for this sundae when building the dessert menu for the Momofuku restaurant group. Seeking to bridge dinner and dessert, Tosi incorporated the flavor profile of the restaurants’ main dishes by transforming basic pantry staples into a sweet, salty, umami butterscotch-like spread. According to Tosi, the key is toasting and browning the shiro (white) miso, which adds depth to an otherwise one-note flavor. Get the recipe here.
