How Martha was I recently? On a dare from chef George Mendes, I recently dropped by NYC's Aldea to pay the chef a visit and hopefully sample some of his delicious food. Maybe he regretted it? I'm not sure, but he did offer a seat at the chef's table for dessert. It faces an open kitchen from which came some seriously awesome food - desserts in particular! George promised to teach us to make the donuts which are a family recipe. They are sugar and cinnamon crusted with chocolate and caramel-- as if that's not enough, they're dipped in one of several sauces: spiced chocolate, apple-quince compote, apple cider caramel.
Is that a promise George?!
