He may have wowed the world with his Cronut and cookie cups but Dominique Ansel isn't one to rest on his laurels. The New York-baked pastry genius has now given the world the Waffogato, a playful twist on the espresso and ice cream dessert known in Italian as affogato.
According to Ansel's Instagram, the waffogato features a "vanilla ice cream waffle with Belgium waffle bits, slightly salted, and topped with maple-syrup espresso poured on top. As the ice cream melts, little tapioca pearls are revealed and float in the melted ice cream espresso sauce."
The pastry chef debuted the waffogato on the Wendy Williams talk show but it won't be available at his SoHo pastry shop until the weather gets warmer, The Daily Meal reports.
