If you ever hear an interior designer shouting, "It's the bombé!" don't jump to conclusions. She might be referring to a cabinet. A bombé is a low wooden chest with a bulging façade and sides. Fittingly, "bombé" as it turns out, means "curved" in French. Most of these cabinets have drawers, often three, although some have doors like a sideboard. They're often used to store clothing in a bedroom or table linens in a dining room, and paired with a mirror placed above them.
With its layers of colorful ice cream and pretty shape, a bombe is a stunning Summer dessert. Bombes are made by spreading softened ice cream into a mold, one flavor at a time. After the entire dessert is frozen solid, the bombe is unmolded, sliced, and served.
