Ice Cream Events

Bringing high quality ice cream to your event

It’s summer pudding season!

We have a small kitchen garden plot with a few soft fuit bushes in the corner. While our hens enjoy the low hanging fruit they kindly leave us anything they cant reach at the top of the bushes. This fruit normally goes straight into a summer pudding and what better flavour ice cream to serve with this seasonal favourite but Blackcurrants and Clotted Cream.

Summer pudding recipe

This is probably one of the easiest puddings you can make, all you need is:

  • enough blackcurrants, redcurrants etc to go into a pudding bowl,
  • a loaf of slightly stale white sliced bread
  • sugar (to taste)
  • Ice cream

Wash the fruit and remove any stalks, leaves, insects and small snails etc. Put the fruit in a saucepan and heat to slightly soften the fruit and release some of the juices (no more than 5 minutes).  Add sugar to taste. 

Cut the crusts of the bread and place the slices around the sides of the bowl, don’t overlap the slices, cut the bread into shapes to fill any gaps. Spoon the fruit into the  lined bowl, saving some of the juice for later. Place more bread on the top of the fruit and place a saucer with a weight on top to press everything together and force the bread to absorb the juice. Place in the fridge and leave for 12 hours. 

To serve, carefully turn the bowl upside down onto a plate and pour the saved juice onto the pudding to ensure all of the bread has taken on a fruity red colour.

Add a scoop or two of Marshfield Farm’s Blackcurrants and Clotted Cream ice cream. Fantastic!

Favourite flavours – Strawberries and clotted cream

One of the toughest parts of our job is testing new ice cream flavours. What shall I do today, paperwork or try ice cream? Let me just say that the paperwork can pile up a bit. This year our supplier Marshfield Farm launched Strawberries and Clotted Cream, we tried it, the children tried it and ………we loved it! We have been serving it at most of our events recently and it has been a big hit, sometimes even outselling the old favourite Vanilla. Next time you see us at an event come and try a cone, if we have any left.

Now shall I make a start on my accounts or make sure the Chocolate Fudge Brownie is as good as it was when I tried it yesterday?

Ice cream recipe – Affogato

Me and the children were looking for something to do on a cold, wet Wednesday in the Spring half-term. “Lets make a film!” said Bryn, “about ice cream” added Grace. I needed a coffee so we put all three together and made this short film on how to make an Affogatto.
