Soon, I will be back in New York. I, of course, have mixed feelings about this. But one thing is for sure: I still have a lot of sweets to get through.
If you’re like me, rice pudding isn’t exactly the dessert of dreams. It doesn’t get my heart racing or make my stomach do cartwheels. But that started changing when Bennie ordered the rice pudding at Café Constant. It was exquisite. And then on a more recent visit to Chez l’Ami Jean, my esteem for rice pudding as one of the best all-around dessert options was solidified.
Of course everything at Chez l’Ami Jean is a little bigger and more decadent so the rice pudding was not a modest little boule. In fact, one serving—what you’re looking at—could easily feed a family of four.
Especially with the whipped salted caramel cream and candied granola it’s served with.
Tell me if there’s anything you want to sample vicariously through me… it would be a honor. And my pleasure.
