Clever Ways to Serve Ice-Cream

How many times have you wished that you could serve your ice-cream in a more attractive way to your guests? Worry no more! Try these awesomelicious ways to serve ice-cream, so that you and your gueasts can get a break from the typical bowl-and-two-scoops style:

It’s a wrap
Sandwich a scoop of ice cream between two chocolate biscuits (cookies) and gently squeeze together. Make as many as you need, then serve straight away, or wrap each one tightly in plastic and freeze to serve later.

Rhubarb surprise
Chop some rhubarb and place in a saucepan with sugar to taste. (Add a cinnamon stick or pinch of ground cinnamon if desired.) Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until the rhubarb is soft and pulpy. Serve with vanilla ice cream, with a gourmet shortbread on the side.

Takes the cake
Cut a ready-made sponge cake or chocolate cake in half horizontally. Top the base with small scoops of ice cream, then replace the top. Drizzle with chocolate or another sauce, cut into wedges and serve immediately.

Tips for Making Pasta

  1. Use ’00’ flour or flour that says it is suitable for making pasta. Other flours will not produce a dough that can hold its shape in the water.
  2. Don’t add salt to the flour because it will lead to white spots forming on the dough and finished pasta.
  3. Keep any lumps of pasta dough that you’re not using, or sheets of pasta that you still need to work with covered tightly, because it can dry out quickly and become hard and unusable.
