  • Mandarin and lemon ice cream at mid-winter

    Mandarin and lemon ice cream at mid-winter

    It came as a bit of a shock looking back to see than my last posting was ‘S’long to South Africa’.  Life has changed quite a bit since then as I have taken a job as Environment Officer for the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. It is a great job for […]

  • 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 […]

  • Whisky and honey ice-cream – Antarctic style

    Whisky and honey ice-cream – Antarctic style

    Update: Click here for the updated Whisky and Honey Ice Cream recipe. SANAE IV research station is located on a small nunatak called Vesleskarvet, in Western Dronning Maud Land. Although the building its self is rather impressive, it is but a tiny spec on the immense landscape of the Antarctic. It is this landscape that […]

  • Rooibos and honey ice cream

    Rooibos and honey ice cream

    After some elegant shipping arrangements the ice cream maker so kindly procured for me by the triple motion crew (see last post for detailed thanks) has finally made it to South Africa. Yippee! However, in order to get it here within my luggage allowance I had to co-opt some help in the form of my good […]

  • Raspberry Sorbet

    Raspberry Sorbet

    Here’s the last of the four flavours we made on Blackford Hill recently. This Raspberry Sorbet was absolutely delicious – probably one of the best sorbets I’ve ever made! Thibault and Celine hoped to make a Peach and Basil Sorbet, but had no luck at finding ripe peaches. Instead they bought a few punnets of […]

  • Mint Ice Cream

    Mint Ice Cream

    For our Blackford Hill ice cream party we decided to make a mint ice cream to go with the chocolate gelato (or was it chocolate to go with the mint?). Anyway, we had never made it before, but thought it was worth a try. Basically, all we did was stuff a bunch of mint leaves […]

  • Banoffee Ice Cream

    Banoffee Ice Cream

    This one is not for the faint-hearted. Literally. This is indeed the richest ice cream we have ever made. Thibault again deserves the credit for the idea, suggesting both toffee and banana for an impulsive ice cream last Sunday in Newcastle. Now, I know your mouth is watering for the full account of our Hebridean […]

  • Marzipan Ice Cream

    Marzipan Ice Cream

    Before the outstanding account of our ice-cream adventures in the Hebrides, here is another recipe we did a few weeks ago and forgot to mention. Last time I was shopping at Real Foods, I saw chunks of marzipan they were selling by weight. The idea of incorporating this sweet treat into a big batch of […]

  • The Best Pancakes

    The Best Pancakes

    To accompany the Marzipan Ice Cream, I thought we should publish the best pancake recipe ever! I’m not talking crêpes. These are big, fluffy American-style pancakes. My mom gave me this recipe in her wonderful little book titled “Mother’s Recipes for Peter”. I’m not sure where she got it, but it is worth repeating here. […]

  • Blueberry Sorbet

    Blueberry Sorbet

    UPDATE: We recently made a much better Blueberry Sorbet using wild Scottish Blaeberries. Last May Big D took me to the Vintner Rooms in Leith for dinner with his mum… That could be interesting enough in itself, but what we’re talking about here is frozen dessert.When it came to the pudding course, I ordered “blueberry […]
