I like ice cream, I won’t say I love it but rather I like the cold feeling in my mouth, especially on a hot day, but there is something rather decadent about ‘proper’ ice cream, you know the kind made with organic cream from happy cows, egg yolks from truly free range organic eggs and fresh fragrant vanilla pods.
THIS is that kind of ice-cream.
When I was younger my parents treated us occasionally to join them (we are 4 kids!) at their favourite steakhouse, which was probably not their favourite but rather one they would agree to take us to. In any event they had the best ice cream and chocolate sauce. Thick chocolate sauce and thin icy ice cream.
My version is warm not-so-thick chocolate sauce and thick ice cream.
I know less than 1% of the population owns a ice cream machine and I promise to test good no-churn one soon, but in the meantime, try this one (but use vanilla pods please)!
The chocolate sauce is a dream, the better the chocolate, the better the sauce, I use a combination of dark (70%) and milk (for the kids) and Lindt (always).
