While not extinct (at least not yet), I'd like to see the Baked Alaska make a comeback on restaurant menus.
There's something wonderfully outrageous about the simultaneous hot and cold sensation that, really, only a well-made Baked Alaska can create on the palate.
And it's sort of rather impractical to make at home unless I decide to take like a 30 minute intermission between dinner and dessert, which isn't really something I really want to do. I'd be too tempted to just dig in on the ice cream without bothering with the meringue ...
What about you? What desserts would you like to see make a comeback?
