Floral ice creams may not be all that common. But if you like Oriental desserts, you have likely already come across the Orange blossom flavour. Since I happen to adore this dreamy, aromatic stuff, it was just a matter of time before it would end up in an ice cream. And what an ice cream it turned out to be! This particular adaptation of the popular Sicilian gelato combines […]

And in Italy, the birthplace of the famous ice cream flavour, ‘stracciatella’ can also refer to a cheese, or a Roman soup-like dish  (where the shreds come from eggs). But most fans of ice cream probably think about vanilla ice cream with small, delicious shreds of dark chocolate! Stracciatella is not just […]

This may be particularly true when speaking about acquired tastes, like those for goat cheese and for Cognac. And I’m speaking out of experience – my first attempt at this ice cream turned into an unbalanced abomination of goat cheese and unpleasantly large quantities of […]
