I will be back soon, I promise.

I was in Malaysia and Hong Kong last month and vowed to consume some local ice cream flavors, which I did! Nope, no durian because I don’t really like the taste of durian, but I enjoyed samplings of jackfruit, soursop, starfruit, red bean ice creams. Yes, I have been inspired by my travels but it so happens that I am overwhelmed with work this month or I would be making more ice creams!

Flavors on my list include:

Kaya Toast ice cream (This is a popular Malaysian breakfast)

Mangosteen or Rambutan ice cream

Blood Orange sorbet 

Bacon-infused Bourbon ice cream with Bacon Powder (using Tapioca Maltodextrin)

Black and White ice cream. Flavors TBD…

An adaptation of the Pear Caramel ice cream recipe in The Perfect Scoop. I am also swirling in some Trader Joe’s Fleur De Sel Caramel Sauce because I am totally addicted to it.

Recipe from Jeni’s splendid book. I used Plush Puff’s Gourmet Gingerbread Spice marshmallows. (Thank you, Justin!) I still don’t own a kitchen torch so the marshmallows were toasted the old-fashioned way over my stove.

Recipe from Jeni’s splendid book. The coffee is Trader Joe’s French Roast blend and as I didn’t have any cheesecloth to strain it with, I used my regular fine mesh strainer and strained it several times. The Espresso Hot Fudge Sauce is the same one that I added to this Chestnut ice cream recipe.  HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, SKIP!

Pineapple Sorbet with a kick! I used just over a pinch of Aleppo Chilli pepper and the kick was very subtle. Paprika and/or Cayenne would work too. This recipe is based on the Pineapple Sorbet recipe in Jeni’s book.

My original plan was to make a Frangelico Lime Ice Cream, based on one of my favorite summer cocktails. After enjoying a Banana Bread Ale last week, this idea evolved into a Roasted Banana Frangelico Ice Cream with Chocolate-Lime freckles and I also had some excellent names to choose from, like “Tropical Monk”, “Banana Habit”, and “Blessed Banana”. However, I found the Chocolate Lime Freckles (dark chocolate, coconut oil & lime zest) a bit too overpowering so I left this part out of the recipe. Next time, perhaps a Nutella Fudge Sauce?

Inspired by the Bee’s Knees cocktail, which is Lemon Juice, Honey and Gin. I added a bit of lavender to give it a Provençal twist. This recipe is like a boozy version of the Lemon-Lavender Ice Cream recipe. P.S. “The Bee’s Knees” is also one of my dog's several silly nicknames. eg, "Well, aren’t YOU the Bee’s Knees?"

I was inspired by this recipe and bummed that I couldn’t find any fresh cranberries today, so I went with a chunky sauce made from vodka-plumped cranberries instead. The base and sauce techniques are from Jeni’s book. The chocolate is Lindt White Chocolate. P.S. Have you LIKED our Facebook page yet? :)

UPDATE - Replacing with a Raspberry Vodka Sauce! 1 cup of fresh raspberries, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tsp lemon juice, 2 TB vodka. Cook for 10-15 minutes and strain.

I don’t remember the last time I had a Pfeffernüsse cookie… This ice cream brings back the memories! Here is my non-vegan adaptation of the Pfeffernüsse Ice Cream recipe in Vegan A La Mode. I added more spices and honey, and used anise flavor extract instead of ground anise.

My non-vegan adaptation of the Cherry Cola Ice Cream recipe in Vegan A La Mode. The original recipe calls for a reduction of 8 cups of cola to 1 cup but because I was impatient (and it’s 100 degrees in L.A.) I reduced 6 cups instead. The original recipe also calls for 1/3 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of coconut milk (subbed here with heavy cream) but the result was so intensely sweet that I have ditched the sugar and increased the cream.

Bi-Rite, Humphrey Slocombe, Full Tilt & Molly Moon

Arrived home today from a quick trip up north and of course, I had to visit the local ice creameries!

SAN FRANCISCO

Our first stop was the famous Bi-Rite Creamery. There was a long line out the door which meant no time for me to sample every flavor.

Everyone raves about Bi-Rite’s Salted Caramel so that was what we ordered, along with a Malted Vanilla with Peanut Brittle. Both flavors were absolutely amazing. Uber rich, creamy, luscious, decadent to-die-for ice cream. Totally worth the hype!

Unfortunately we were only doing a quick stop in SF so there was no time to try one of their signature sundaes. How amazing does this sound? —> Dainty gentleman: honey lavender ice cream, hot fudge, blood orange olive oil & maldon sea salt”.

The next morning, we delayed our departure time from SF so that we could visit Humphry Slocombe - famous for their adventurous flavors. I was so excited I had already bought their book even before visiting the shop.

After sampling almost all the flavors on the menu that day, I was particularly blown away by the Jesus Juice Sorbet (coke and red wine) which I paired with some Secret Breakfast (bourbon, vanilla, cornflakes). Yes, it was a boozy start to the morning. The Black Sesame that Nathan ordered was really good too.

Third on my list was Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous but they were closed on Tuesdays. Boo.

SEATTLE

Full Tilt Ice Cream is an old school pinball arcade type ice cream shop. My friend Julissa and I visited the Columbia City location and we sampled a few flavors including the Vegan Blue Moon, Horchata and Salted Caramel. We ended up sharing an enormous scoop of the Birthday Cake ice cream which had cake (thumbs up!) and colorful sprinkles in it.

We had time left for only one more -  Molly Moon - Seattle’s most famous artisanal ice cream shop, and I was pleasantly surprised to see a Boston Terrier in their logo!!! :)

The cute shop on Capitol Hill was very busy when we arrived so we didn’t sample too many flavors. I found most of the fruity flavors a bit too subtle but the Salted Caramel was delicious. Nathan enjoyed the Stumptown Coffee and I got the Honey Lavender.

Of all the ice creams tasted, I would say that Bi Rite and Humphrey Slocombe were my favorites.

Now back in L.A. I feel the need to organize some sort of ice cream tasting tour. Mashti Malones, Carmelas, Fosselmans, Scoops Westside, Coolhaus…Who wants to join me?

aka Mexican Chocolate ice cream. The average Mole sauce is made up of a zillion ingredients including at least two different types of chiles. This Choco-Mole ice cream flavor is much simpler - dark chocolate, ancho chiles and a couple of spices - taking inspiration from this White Chocolate Ancho Chile Ice Cream recipe.
