No. 79: Apple And Berry Crisp at Salum

There has long been a problem with fruit crisp desserts. Too much fruit. Not enough crisp. Abraham Salum has finally righted that wrong.


The Apple and Berry Crisp at Salum is a mixture of apples and raspberries served in a massive portion with a simple side of Crème Anglaise. The kitchen will happily bring it to you a la mode if you prefer, but the Crème Anglaise is a better bet. The dessert comes piping hot and the ingredients are no mystery here: flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, butter. The slight of hand lies in the preparation and the abundance of rich, crunchy, not-too-sweet topping. Think grandma's apple pie meets haute cuisine.
