Jordan Wine Country Table - Vol. 15, 2020 - 45

A
successful dessert awakens the inner child, a welcome touch of nostalgia
and comfort to conclude a formal meal. It is the element of surprise from
a tableside bananas foster, cherries jubilee or crepes suzette brought to
the guest. For me, though, the impossibility of a hot dessert surrounding
frozen ice cream or sorbet was pure magic, and to be able to perform
the " trick " now is a bit of a childhood dream come true.
The history of the dessert is somewhat muddled if you dig into the lore. It is often
attributed to Antoine's Restaurant of New Orleans, created in celebration of the
newly purchased state of Alaska from Imperial Russia in 1867. I tend to believe the
first written account where it was named the " Florida Alaska " after the differences
in climate. Whatever the origin, our Jordan Baked Alaska consists of Jordan Extra
Virgin Olive Oil Cake (recipe at jordanwinery.com) or financier cake as the base,
our honey ice cream and simple Swiss meringue, garnished with cuttings of
flowers from our pollinator garden, the colorful pollen collected from our hives
and whimsical marzipan bees we make by hand.
FIVE STEPS
TO A PERFECT
BAKED ALASKA
Bake a sheet cake of your choice and freeze; any sponge cake will work.
At Jordan, we use either our olive oil cake or financier; but a brownie or even
a cookie will work with some simple trial and error.
The ice cream is molded into ramekins for individual servings or layered
in a plastic-lined mixing bowl for a large presentation to be sliced tableside.
The ice cream is then frozen again for a minimum of 2-3 hours or up to a few days
if wrapped carefully in cling wrap.
Cut the frozen cake to the size of the ramekin or bowl top and then invert the molded
ice cream onto the cake. Return to the freezer to fuse the two layers together.
The day prior to serving, pipe or spoon the Swiss meringue (see seriouseats.com for a
thorough explanation) around the entire dessert and decorate as desired. Return to the freezer.
All that is left is a quick browning in a 500-degree oven for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with handmade
marzipan bees and serve to stunned guests. Magic.
