Spiced Quince Ice Cream

This Spiced Quince Ice Cream is so good. Very very rich and so good. The frozen chunks of preserved quince adds a fresh crisp texture in between all that richness and creaminess. There is something quite old school about quinces for me and the idea was to give it a bit of a modern twist. I have not seen it used in many ice creams and I think using preserved quince worked really well. The idea originally was to make…

Christmas Milkshake

  I am sure I got the idea for these Christmas Milkshakes on the treadmill. And it is not the first time that has happened. In all honesty it is such a dull experience being on one, combined with watching news which is hardly ever good, that my mind usually wanders to what I am going to do for the blog. I wanted to do a festive holiday drink but am a bit of a creature of habit and my…

Semifreddo is without a doubt my new favourite thing. It delivers an incredibly delicious ice cream and has to be the easiest way of making ice cream when you do not have an ice cream maker. Cape Town city centre is dotted with fruit sellers selling an array of fruit and vegetables during the week. I enjoy seeing the seasons change in their wares. Strawberries have started to appear and I saw the first batch of guavas just this week…

Think about your morning cup of tea with a piece of toast and marmalade. Now imagine it as ice cream. Or even better, as an ice cream sandwich. This is the second recipe I developed with the wonderful products that was so kindly given to me by the Clemengold team and I just love these Earl Grey Ice Cream Sandwiches. The first recipe I made were the Sweet and Sour Tequila Ribs and I am really chuffed with the feedback…

I saw the link to this Frozen Zabaglione recipe on my Twitter feed and immediately wanted to make it. It was originally published in The New York Times by David Tanis, as part of his column titled “An Inspired Lunch Puts Brunch to Shame”. Brunch seems to be quite the American trend which has not quite caught on here. And when we “do brunch”, it will be for more special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries, rather than a weekend ritual. Unless…

Once in a while it is fun to give a classic dish a facelift and you can’t get more South African classic than a peppermint crisp tart. This recipe has been in the back of my mind in various forms for about a year now and I only got down to making it when the peppermint choc chip ice cream idea entered the mix (while on the treadmill – the irony of which is not lost on me). And I…
