  • Watermelon and mint sorbet

    Watermelon and mint sorbet

    Gosh, it’s been so long I haven’t posted anything! This is not due to a decrease in the ice-cream making activity, but rather to a lack of pictures, making posts less interesting. Fortunately, I now have a phone with a camera, and will try to post more often. Anyway, August has been very hot in […]

  • From green bean to ice-cream: coffee ice-cream from scratch

    From green bean to ice-cream: coffee ice-cream from scratch

    I have been fairly quiet on the Triple Motion blog for a while now.  I feel slightly embarrassed that I let life get in the way of a good cranking session and so as part of my mid-year resolution I am determined to make a mends. I was not really sure what flavour to go […]

  • Frozen Bellinis – Peach Sorbet in Sparkling Rosé at Festival de Cannes

    Frozen Bellinis РPeach Sorbet in Sparkling Ros̩ at Festival de Cannes

    As you might have guessed by the relative quiet on Triple Motion over the last few months, we’re not always just making ice cream and sorbet. I’m also involved in filmmaking. Naturally, film and ice cream go together. So when we’re at film festivals, we can’t help but bring along a White Mountain Freezer. Last […]

  • 119th Anniversary of the First Ice Cream Sundae?

    119th Anniversary of the First Ice Cream Sundae?

    Apparently 119 years ago today someone somewhere invented the Ice Cream Sundae – the classic dish of scoops of ice cream topped with syrup, whipped cream and the ubiquitous cherry. According to Wikipedia, there is some debate about where and when the ice cream sundae was invented, but today Google has featured the ice cream […]

  • Redcurrant Sorbet

    Redcurrant Sorbet

    Thibault and I made this sorbet 2 summers ago at a farm house in the Auvergne. It was a great couple of days relaxing in the countryside with the only memorable stress being and an epic game of petanque. There were a clutch of red currant bushes in the the orchard in front of the house […]

  • Rum Ice-cream and Christmas Pudding

    Rum Ice-cream and Christmas Pudding

    I’ve been making this for a number of years now to accompany christmas pudding and as an alternative to hot rum sauce. I like the contrast between hot dark rich pudding and cold refreshing ice cream. It’s become something of a family tradition.

  • Wasabi Ice Cream (with roadkill venison steaks)

    Wasabi Ice Cream (with roadkill venison steaks)

    Just because I’ve been quiet on here recently doesn’t mean I haven’t been cranking. Quite the contrary! What follows is a surprising treat, part by ingenuity, part by accident. Jess invited me to make ice cream at her birthday party on a recent weekend and I was of course delighted to take two machines out […]

  • Paw-paw/Papaya icecream in the Cederberg, South Africa

    Paw-paw/Papaya icecream in the Cederberg, South Africa

    Back in March I took a trip out to South Africa to visit my sister, and whilst there we cooked up this little adventure.  Soon after arriving we had some beautifully ripe paw-paw for breakfast and decided to see if they’d make good icecream. To add a bit more interest we decided to try making […]

  • Rhubarb Ice-cream

    Rhubarb Ice-cream

    Back to business! It’s been a while since my last post, but the ice-cream frenzy is still on! Last weekend, my friend Bastien had a few visitors : his brother and his girlfriend, who live in Youngstown, Ohio.  Bastien’s sister and a friend of hers also joined this happy family gathering. Knowing that Bastien lives […]

  • Maple Syrup and Rum Ice Cream

    Maple Syrup and Rum Ice Cream

    In celebration of Cheryl’s 30th birthday, I hauled my trusty half-gallon White Mountain freezer down to Brighton on the overnight MegaBus (10 hours of sheer pain!). Despite my sore back and neck, we were determined to make the effort worthwhile and decided to crank a simple batch of Maple Syrup Ice Cream. Cheryl’s friend had […]
