It’s worth mentioning this nicely written piece from Serious Eats about how to make the “best” Ice cream with out an ice cream maker. I have delved into this contentious area of culinary science on this blog with my piece, “Ice Cream: The McGyver Way” and though I believe my method is perfect for producing fruit flavoured ice creams, in order to make a great vanilla ice cream – like you’d get from Doddingtons or “Cool As” from Over Langshaw, both down here in the Borders – you have to go into a little more detail.
Anyway, please check out the piece here:
The debate that ensues in the comments section is an eye opener in itself.

The Icecreamists have taken over a section of Selfridges flagship store in London. This particular brand of ice creamery is a cheeky blend of punk aesthetics and risque “Carry On” style British humour. I’m not entirely convinced by it all. as the Sex Pistols said… “Never mind the Bollocks”.
It seems to have annoyed the SexPistols enough for them to issue a writ for plagerism. Honestly, what a lot of Pavlova… I mean palaver.
