How about some corn ice-cream on a grilled corn cob? Japan’s Dominique Ansel is offering such a sweet and different dessert named Crème de la Corn.

At the Japanese outpost of Dominique Ansel Kitchen in Tokyo, the famed pastry chef has created an ice-cream cone like you’ve never seen before.

Ansel, notable of course for his famous Cronut, is known for his innovative pastry and ice-cream creations. Recently, Food & Wine reported on (and got an in-office tasting of) Ansel’s temporary creation in collaboration with chef Alex Stupak at Dominique Ansel Kitchen in New York: A corn ice-cream taco in a masa waffle cone shell, garnished with roasted corn caramel and a side of salsa verde. Now, the Tokyo location is taking this corn creation to the next level, Food & Wine reported. The Crème de la Corn utilizes the same caramel sweet corn soft serve, but in place of cone is, well, more corn.
