It looks cool. It just isn’t. This sauce used to be served with the carrot cake, and it makes use of a strategy of cooking carrots in carrot juice, which is between my favorite tricks.

Remove the sauce from the heat and blend using an immersion blender until smooth. Season with salt, sugar, and lemon juice. CANDIED CARROTS This recipe is inspired in part by the Looney Tunes episode where Bugs Bunny buys carrots out of a vending machine. Even as a kid I was obsessed with food, but this image struck me especially: He bought carrots out of a vending machine! At eight years old, to me carrots (historically boring, healthy, a drag) were granted the same status as candy, then the most important thing in the world. Kim Janusz, one of my long-standing sous-chefs at Del Posto, came up with this method for candying carrots. My single contribution, as usual, was to suggest adding salt. It is likely this is going to set off your home’s smoke alarm. Don’t disable it! Do you know how dangerous that is? Instead, do as my mom used to and stand on a chair and use a dish towel to wave the smoke away from the alarm. That’s fun! It means you’re really cooking. Yield: 3 servings Extra-virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon (5 grams) Baby carrots 6 halved lengthwise Sugar 2 tablespoons (25 grams) Unsalted butter ½ teaspoon (2 grams) Salt to taste 1. In a small sauté pan over high heat, heat the olive oil for 1 minute. Sear the carrots, cut side down, until they’ve taken on a little color. (Don’t cook them through. You want them al dente. ) 2. Coat the carrots and the pan with a light layer of sugar, stir, and cook until the sugar darkens to a golden brown, about 5 mins. Remove from the heat. three. Add the butter to the pan, toss to coat, and season with salt. PAPPA AL POMODORO Pappa al pomodoro is one of my very favorite things to eat. It isn’t a dessert, but here it is nonetheless, in my dessert book. It is pizza in stew form: tomato and bread stew. It’s a snack I make for my pastry staff each winter. Everyone loves it. One of the issues of working around and tasting desserts all day is that your body constantly craves salty, umami-filled stuff to balance out all that ice cream and cookie dough. This is a perfect example of that. As a method of using up stale bread, pappa al pomodoro could not be more efficient. Use canned San Marzano tomatoes if you can locate them. Massimo, an outdated coworker from my time in DC and a proud Tuscan, taught me this recipe and said the literal translation means “it’s good for your grandfather because he doesn’t have any enamel.
