Happy Bloomsday

Joyce Happy Bloomsday! Here’s a photo I took when I was in Dublin that seems appropriate… I can’t remember any mention of ice cream in Ulysses, but maybe there’s someone who can suggest a Joycean ice cream?

    Now I’m not for a moment suggesting you waste your time doing it, but a Heston Blumenthal-ish mutton kidney ice cream, bringing together the comforting smoothness of both textures, could possibly work. Add a strand or two of Kerry seaweed to partner the fine tang of urine and you’re flying, I’d say.

    Or how about something whipped up from the creamy head of a pint of stout? You could call it Buck Mulligan’s Shaving Soap. Surely there’d be at least one person curious enough…

    By the way, it took five goes to get that up. Your security code thing is pretty hard to convince.

    “I’d love a big juicy pear now to melt in your mouth like when I used to be in the longing way”- says Molly. Seems to me a Pear Ice Cream would make her happy.

    Always good to keep Molly happy. I’m sorry for that Julian. Maybe I need to find a new plug-in…

    How about an Irish whiskey flavour with an oaty background note. The oats because porridge would be a tolerable meal after a hard night’s drinking.
