Ice cream for wine connaisseurs? Or – could red wine really survive the transition to frozen dessert? Let’s find out!

Who doesn’t like sophisticated, exotic and adult ice cream flavours? Well, quite a lot of people actually. Matters of taste are notoriously difficult to predict.

Robinson Crusoe had no ice cream machine, and this time of the year, the same goes for me. But there is hope – still-frozen ice cream! Our summer island is clearly less tropical than Robinson’s, being situated in the cold waters of the Swedish archipelago.  The forests here are ripe with delicious blueberries and even some exquisite wild strawberries, and occasionally, […]
