I’m always down for a good collaboration (See: Nike x J. Crew), so when Brooklyn’s Four & Twenty Blackbirds popped up at Los Feliz’s Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams this past weekend, I had to swoop in for a taste. The verdict: Pie a la mode never tasted so good.
After spending the afternoon at the super-crowded Los Angeles Zoo (Note to self: never, ever again), June, The Astronomer, and I were ready for a sweet and cold reprieve.
Our family shared two slices topped with two scoops—Strawberry Kaffir Lime with a scoop of candied ginger and Salted Caramel Apple with a scoop of salty caramel.
Served up warm, both slices boasted rich, golden, and flaky all-butter crusts and perfectly tart fruit fillings, while the ice creams complemented the pies on all fronts. A match made in artisanal heaven, and then some.
