“baked Alaska : A dessert consisting of ice cream encased in cake and meringue and briefly baked.
The dessert is said to have been named by Charles Ranhofer, chef of Delmonico’s in New York City, New York, USA, to mark the latter’s purchase of Alaska from the Russian Empire in 1867, 150 years ago today. However, there is no contemporary report of this fact.”
