Perry's Steakhouse & Grille offers new dessert - Blazing Baked Alaska
May 7, 2019 - Known for offering exceptional dining experiences and signature flaming tableside desserts since 1979, Perry's Steakhouse & Grille has a new addition to its dessert menu - its newest signature dessert, the Baked Alaska for Two.
Charles Ranhofer, a French Chef who was working in New York City, holds claim to the original Baked Alaska creation in 1867. The dessert was originally served to celebrate the United States' purchase of Alaska. Chef Ranhofer's version of the dessert included slices of sponge cake or pound cake topped with a ball-shaped build of ice cream or sherbet enclosed in meringue then flambéed or baked until browned.
This iconic retro dessert is rarely seen in its original form now. However, Perry’s has added its own twist to this creative dessert. Instead of a classic sponge cake, celebrity Chef Rick Moonen, Perry's Master Development Chef, has introduced a citrus shortbread. The ice cream also has been replaced with a frozen lemon custard and covered with a vanilla bean cloud of meringue. Baked and then flamed tableside with Grand Marnier, it is time to experience this Rare and Well Done Baked Alaska for Two.
Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille has 20 locations across United States.
