  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 oz dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  1. In a saucepan, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, and grated Parmesan cheese. Heat over medium heat until it just begins to simmer.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, salt, and pepper.
  3. Gradually pour the hot cream mixture into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly.
  4. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  5. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl and cool to room temperature.
  6. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  7. Churn the mixture in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Freeze until firm.
  8. In a bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  9. Add the water and melted butter, and mix until a dough forms.
  10. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/4-inch thickness.
  11. Cut the dough into 2-inch squares and place a piece of chopped dark chocolate in the center of each square.
  12. Fold the dough over the chocolate to form dumplings, pinching the edges to seal.
  13. Steam the dumplings for about 10 minutes or until cooked through.
  14. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  15. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, and melted butter.
  16. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  17. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 350°F (175°C).
  18. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil and fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  19. Remove the donut bites with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  20. Dust with powdered sugar.

This dish is an adventurous blend of sweet and savory elements that will surprise and delight your taste buds. Serve the savory ice cream alongside the warm chocolate dumplings and crispy donut bites for an unforgettable culinary experience. Enjoy!
