A couple of questions for the foodies on my flist…

I love cooking, and I don’t mean just dinner steak-and-three-veg style cooking. I love baking and dinner parties and planning and prepping. (but not cleaning 🙂 ) The more complicated the better.

The thing is, I have realised I’ve lost my adventurous streak. This is partly because while I was working fulltime it was hard, but it’s also a carry over from a time of being so broke that I had to cook safe in order to not destroy the small amount of food we hand on hand.

Anyway, I want to change this 🙂

So, this week, I have been making yoghurt, and am going to give cheese a whirl (starting with ricotta today.) In the last couple of days I have been making frozen yoghurt and am going to do ice cream as well…but I don’t just want chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. I want new, and exciting and different.

So my question:

What are your favourite flavours to put in ice cream/gelato/frozen yoghurt?

    For something interesting, K. has made a white-chocolate-and-lavender icecream. I really liked it, but some people think it tastes like a cleaning product. 🙂

      Oh, and in the same vein as angriest’s strawberry and basil – rose petal.

      Oohh…Lavender flowers? or oil?

        For the rustic option, lavender flowers.
        For the less rustic option, an infusion of the flowers. K. says you need to mix the flowers with the sugar, to make lavender sugar, which you then use to make the icecream. (If you just use the straight infusion, it goes grey.)

    In Hong Kong this year I had strawberry and basil flavoured gelato, which was an interesting experience.

      Interesting would be a good word for it. ALthough, I guess I thought the same thing the first time I heard about strawberries in balsamic vinegar, and they win.

        I’m straining to remember all four flavours that Sonia and I tried. I think one was lychee and ginger, which was quite interesting.

        I’ve been told lychee and green tea is nice, and I have a couple of tins of lychees in the pantry that have been there forever, so I might have to use them and experiment.

        I love the taste of lychee.
