Sorbet Cardinale (raspberry-blackcurrant sorbet)

09/07/2014 at 15:32

Sorbet Cardinale, a delicate flavour composed of raspberries and blackcurrants, seems to be quite rare these days. This is hard to understand, since it is a very pleasing flavour.  And luckily, one does not have to be a Catholic Eminence to enjoy this delicate, very berry sorbet! As a little extra, this post will also look into the use of gelatin as a stabiliser in sorbets […]

Shirley Temple sorbet

The late Shirley Temple, arguably one of the biggest film child stars of all times, is also connected to the internationally famous ‘mocktail’ which bears her name. As a tribute to the icon, we will turn this (alcohol-free) cocktail into a playful and refreshing sorbet.   The exact origin of the Shirley Temple mocktail seems a bit difficult to acertain: apparently, […]

Rhubarb Spoom

In fact – if you can mix juice, water and sugar, you are practically there!       Brother Marie-Clément Rodier (1839–1904). The Clementine […]

  In the mood for love? If so, what better way to celebrate Valentine’s day – or, indeed any day – with some dazzlingly red Blood orange sorbet? And while love may not always be so easy, I can assure you that making this sorbet is!   Many of you probably know that making a sorbet usually requires a simple sugar syrup as a base, then mixed with whatever flavour you […]

Sparkling Sorbet

  A glass of Sparkling Sorbet – is there a classier way for an ice cream fan to celebrate? Sparkling sorbet could well be the same as “Champagne Sorbet” but then again, you may not have access to the precious French bubbles. While few sparkling wines rival genuine high-class French Champagne, there are luckily other good sparkling wines out there – and usually in much more […]
