The Kid Should See This

Turning quick sketches into beautiful desserts

At Chicago’s critically acclaimed restaurant Elske, co-owner Anna Posey uses her talents as both an artist and a chef to draw sketches of her dessert inventions before she puts them together with food. In this video from Bon Appétit, we can see each come together in artful ways.

Bonus recipe: Her Black-and-White Sesame Tart, as seen in the video. We’re also googling gjetost, a Norwegian brown goat cheese that she makes into a sort of cheesecake.
