Lavender ice cream


This dish of lavender ice cream goes out to Sel & Poivre. I think this batch marks the moment I gave up my silly feelings about fancy flavors. Now, I'm Gary Cooper once he discovers the beauty of 1940s NYC slang. I adore lavender ice cream! Yesterday I made Guinness milk chocolate. Next I'm going to try goat cheese! My copy of The Perfect Scoop is due this week, but my bookstore has promised me one by Thursday.

Looks yum. I had lavender cheese cake at the green zebra last night where my local friend Amy brought me for my birthday. How about lavender beer? --cristina

Its thrilling to know lavender ice cream was made and enjoyed in Mrs. Lear's kitchen because then it can be so in my kitchen too someday. It needn't just stay in my lovely memories of Paris. Thank you for the demonstration!

I made lavender and honey ice-cream a month or so ago - delicious!

Guinness milk chocolate? Wow. I've had Guinness cappuccino ice cream but I'm impressed that you made Guinness chocolate.

Lavender ice cream sounds incredible, too. I made a batch of biscotti with tiny chocolate chips and some lavender in it. Yum.
