Everyone loves ice cream and this book contains the ultimate in ice cream concoctions. Serendipity 3 in New York is the place to go for fabulous desserts and is perennially in vogue. Food media are bound to pick up for reviews as the world becomes more food-obsessed! A recent piece in "InStyle" magazine featured the $1000 Golden Opulence Sundae - perhaps not one to make at home...These are nothing like the ordinary "sundaes" that come in a plastic cup at a fast food joint; Serendipity serves sundaes in giant goblets on a plate with several spoons and straws to deconstruct them. These are sundaes that need a group to share.
The Willy Wonka of New York, Stephen Bruce is the last surviving member of the three founding partners of the restaurant and is in the restaurant everyday gregariously hosting patrons in his dandy suits and coiffed mustache.
