Ice creams are great dessert and tea time delicacy. Here are some secrets and ideas proposed by Delices and Gourmandises for you to make your snack more original.
A matter of taste
Ice creams are generally really sweet. You can pair them with multiple kinds of pastries or other delicacies to enhance the taste even more. Given the fact that all the ingredients taste amazing, it would be hard to distinguish all the different kinds of flavors you are having.
In order to spice up the flavors of ice cream that are known to have a smooth taste such as vanilla, milk chocolate, and banana, it is better to use acidic product to pair with them. Red fruits coulis are the best flavor enhancers. It is even better if you use slightly salted or caramel flavored products.
In another hand, ice cream with strong flavors such as pistachio, chocolate sorbets, and green lemons pair better with smooth cream in order to alleviate the flavor. In sum, it is all about pairing contrasts.
And of texture
Always in the domain of contrast, but this time concerning texture, Delices and Gourmandises proposes you to always pair ice cream with dry biscuits. Their crispy textures combine perfectly well with the soft property of ice creams.
There is a reason why ice creams are always paired with crispy cat’s tongues. If you want to change a little bit you can also choose to use tuiles, butter biscuits, or other delicacies that you can order directly from Delices and Gourmandises.
Finally, you can always try to use dried fruits or other kinds of jams to complement your ice cream and to get other original taste.
