Certain things earn a permanent place in one’s memory because of some unusual fact attached to them. In the case of the dessert, Baked Alaska, that fact is that it’s the only dish in the entire cookbook to require an oven temperature of 500 degrees (F). I’ve been thinking about Baked Alaskas this morning, as I turned my oven up to 500 to supplement a heating system that isn’t quite up to the job of warming a house through three straight nights of -27 (C).

Oh dear. I should have probably planned baked Alaska for dessert for dinner tonight. Who knew?
