eating my way throughNew York Magazine’s
annual Taste eventthis week, I came across something so glorious, so delicious, creative, and gluttonous that I knew immediately: This spectacular dessert is destined to be the next
Titled “The High Road Vanilla Melt,” the dish consists of vanilla Fleur de Sel-flavored ice cream between two cinnamon french toast grilled cheese sandwiches.
Created by Chef Keith Schroeder using his own new ice cream brand called High Road, it somehow combines everything both wonderful and horrible all at the same time.
“I’m always thinking about pleasant ways to present contrast: hot/cold, crunchy/soft, sweet/sour/salty/savory,” Schroeder tells Business Insider of his inspiration for the dessert. “This particular sandwich was a riff on some personal favourite combinations: apple and cheddar, cinnamon and sugar.”
The sandwich will be available at Sweet Auburn Market in Atlanta next week and the High Road ice cream is available in high end grocery stores, but in the meantime Schroeder gave us a step-by-step demonstration of how to make your very own “Vanilla Melt” at home.
Here are the ingredients you will need to create the vanilla melt: bread, apple butter, cinnamon, sugar, melted butter, aged cheddar cheese, and vanilla ice cream.
Step 3: Top one slice of bread with shredded aged cheddar and place the other slice, apple butter side down, on top.
