As soon as they said which Scorsese movie the new dessert course and video references, we knew where it was going. The movie is The Aviator, with Leonardo DiCaprio as Citizen Kane Howard Hughes, his Rosebud being not a sled but a severe case of germophobic OCD that manifested itself famously in wearing Kleenex boxes on his feet to ward off germs, and saving, well, something yellow in jars. iNG executive pastry chef Vince Griffith gleefully goes to town on this inspiration, making a dessert course to wow anybody who loved to gross out parents by eating Gummy Boogers. It’s very funny, we dare you to eat it… but jeez, next time can you make something from The Age of Innocence or Kundun? The Scorsese menu runs through mid-November.
