Photo of the Day – Tuesday June 28, 2011: La Newyorkina

I caught up with Fany at the New Amsterdam Market recently, where her lovely friend Liam (pictured above), was giving out samples of her homemade ice cream with a Mexican influence, such as cinnamon strawberry and cajeta.  Fany also created many of the donuts for Dough, one of New York’s top donut shops.  I had one of Fany’s dulce de leche donut when I participated in a donut tweet-up, for which I am eternally grateful to Food Culturist, Nicole Taylor.  If you haven’t tried La Newyorkina’s frozen pops, you will definitely want try all the flavors, especially the mango-chile and tamarind, as you explore the High Line.

Fany’s lovely dessert cookbook, My Sweet Mexico, was nominated for a James Beard Foundation Award this year.  And her brand new book, Paletas: Authentic Recipes for Mexican Ice Pops, Aguas Frescas & Shaved Ice, was just released earlier this month.  Check back here for a book review coming soon!
