Crazed collector Andrew Novick even collects food memories with his camera, and sometimes he shares them with the world, as he does with Sweet Tooth: 1000 Photographs of Desserts (that I ate), an exhibit that opens with a reception from 5 to 11 p.m. tomorrow at cupcake emporium The Shoppe.
We asked Novick to match some of the images with descriptions, but made him stop at five -- and not necessarily for his benefit alone. "This is fun!," he says. "I wish I had enough time to do this for all 1000 photos!"
Enjoy. And don't drool on your keyboard.
This is a super colorful and fruity dessert from Paxia in northwest Denver. It is fruit+sorbets+tangy sauces -- and spun sugar on top. It looked and tasted amazing!
I received a pi pie dish for Christmas several years ago. I have consumed many many delicious pies while reciting the digits of pi!
In many other countries, they have the old fryers at McDonald's -- you know, like before they got all "healthy" here with the baked apple pies? Also, many countries have their own varieties of fried pies -- like corn pies in Thailand, azuki bean pies in Japan and these pineapple and taro pies in China. I had a haupia (coconut pudding) fried pie in Hawaii, too!
Since the Charles Phoenix invention of the Cherpumple, I have been making varieties of a pie baked inside a cake -- I call it a PieCaken -- sometimes with chemical formulas naming the flavors. This is the Lead-Beryllium3 variety -- a triple-berry pie, baked inside a peanut butter cake.
In Japan, there is a beautiful and delicious dessert referred to as Honey Toasto -- it's half of a loaf of bread on its side, with the bread inside removed, cubed and replaced, and then it is briefly re-baked. Ice cream and sauces and candy or chocolate are added on top. At a cafe in Hong Kong, it was translated to English as "Pillow Toast." We eventually named our business (Gimme Gimme Pillow Toast) after this!
And here's a bonus sneak peek at the special Andrew Novick cupcake, which will be available at the Shoppe tomorrow only.
It's vanilla cake, with lemonade filling and fruit punch frosting...and comes with a fondant tooth!
Very Andrew Novick. Trust us.
