Omelette Thaïlandaise


A few weeks ago, the ever so lovely Leela over at She Simmers challenged me to create a French dessert that encapsulates the classic flavors of Thailand. She wanted something with the gentle kick from galangal, the citrusy aroma of lemongrass and the inebriating perfume of kaffir lime leaves, all in one delicious sweet package.

After scratching my head for quite a bit i came up with a funkified version of Baked Alaska which we should really rename Baked Thailand for the occasion, or Omelette Thaïlandaise in French.

Check out my guest post and recipe at She Simmers. See you on the other side.

    Well I’d say you really rose to the challenge on this one. Just beautiful and I can imagine the wonderful citrusy taste.

    I thought you wanted to create a durian – the King of Fruits and a hugely popular tropical fruit! Google it and see what I mean. 😉

    Nice piping skill Zen-man. Just remember not to burn yourself while drinking the grey goose and flambe at the same time.

    So this was your creation! I saw the photo on FG and thought it was quite intriguing but I had yet to check it out… This is indeed amazing – I bet the flavour is sublime and exotic…

    That’s like a piece of art. Adorable. I would love to try it but on the other hand – I’m not a zen man.
