David Blom, pastry chef at Chef Allen's Restaurant in North Miami, shows Julia Child how to bake traditional Polish cakes known as babas and savarin. He uses a single recipe to create the spongy dough, which is baked and sweetened further by soaking in a sugar syrup. He then flavors them with a variety of liqueurs, including rum, kirsch, and champagne. The cakes are garnished with fresh fruits, whipped cream, and a homemade custard flavored with vanilla bean.
