I have been working a zillion hours a week, in a kitchen that feels like the surface of the sun. Which has been amazing- I'm learning tons, but I have been somewhat less than inspired to cook when I get home. I'm still really feeling frozen treats, and until I can come up with something interesting and blog-worthy to prepare at home, please see the following list of delicious ice creams, gelatos and granitas I have been working on, by way of proof that I'm still trying:
Zabaglione gelato (lemon and marsala flavoured, inspired by the traditional Italian egg white froth)
Fresh strawberry ice cream (spiked with cherry brandy)
Mascarpone gelato (served with fresh strawberries in lemon syrup)
Fresh mint-stracciatella ice cream (mint-chocolate ice cream is totally different when the mint flavour is real, and the colour is not neon green)
Cantaloupe granita (this one was a winner. Waiting until the cantaloup was a shade past ripe gave it a really full and bloomy mouth-feel)
My goal for the week: cook something at home that I can write to y'all about.
