Alyeska Resort riffs on the classic baked Alaska dessert

At Alyeska Resort, a "Baked Alyeska", a take on the classic "Baked Alaska" dessert, is the resort's most popular dish. Executive Pastry Chef Scott Fausz said the resort makes 500 of the desserts at a time several times a week, transforming the entire Alyeska pastry kitchen into an assembly line of mousse, chocolate and fluffy meringue.
