Ice Cream Examined

Ever the last couple weeks, there have been a few interesting articles on ice cream. Click here for Ollie Moore’s piece, that appeared in the Examiner, about ice cream, cows and Murphys!

There was also an article in last Sunday’s Tribune, which talks about ice cream in Ireland, with thoughts from my brother Sean – click here.

Finally, the Independent had a great article on the 10 best beaches for food lovers, and we’re delighted Ventry (and ourselves) made the list! Click here.

Chill Out! Desserts Magazine

dessertsmag For those of you with a penchant for ice cream (and I’m assuming, given this site, that’s most of you!) you might wish to check out the current issue of Desserts Magazine.

I’m not just saying that because they have a full three spreads on us (here), including the black sesame and Irish whiskey recipes, but they have loads of interesting ideas, including a sassafras ice cream rootbeer float, a caramel ice cream Guinness float, a “Sunset Sorbet” which sounds divine: prickly pear and tequila are the prime ingredients, and even ice cream sushi!

Image Magazine Gives Our Vanilla 5 Stars


I was delighted to see the above in this month’s Image Magazine (although my brother and our excellent production team may have some quibbles as to whether it’s my ice cream!)

Anyway, if you want to make our vanilla ice cream, the recipe is here, and I promise there is no glucose or invert sugar!!!
