Nitro Ice Cream at Chin Chin Labs, London

Chin Chin Labs
It’s was blisteringly hot in London over Easter and with all the bank holidays I finally got around to all the places on my “to eat” list!
Chin Chin Labs
They have swings outside!
I’m pretty persuaded by twitter as well for snack suggestions. I found Chin Chin Labs about 6 months ago. I don’t really live near Camden but for liquid nitrogen ice cream I’ll make the trip!
Chin Chin Labs

The base for the ice cream is made (vanilla or chocolate) and then the liquid nitrogen is poured on to instantly freeze it and make it ice cream!

The toppings on offer are really fun and change each week. The day I went was caramelized pretzels, grilled white chocolate, heather honeycomb or popping candy. I went for vanilla ice cream with pretzels and honeycomb.

Video of how the ice cream is made. I loved it, but the toppings were just placed on top. I would have preferred to have my pretzels folded into the ice cream.

Apple Cinnamon Ebelskivers

Apple Cinnamon Ebelskivers
-

I made these for breakfast on Boxing Day. The apple cinnamon compote in the middle takes a little time but it is so worth it. Almost better than eating apple pie!If you don’t have an Ebelskiver pan don’t worry. The filling for these would taste great on any kind of pancake or waffle. You could use it to jazz up some Ego’s too! We ran out of maple syrup so I had mine with vanilla ice cream

Ebelskivers are Danish pancakes that were traditionally filled with jam and served at holidays or celebrations. The ones of today are versatile and filled with sweet or savory items.

Lemon and Basil Frozen Yogurt

Lemon and Basil Frozen Yogurt
-
This recipe is inspired by the gelato I had in Milan, a recipe from the TOTAL Greek Yogurt site and my visit to Gelato Mio workshop last week.
-
I made the frozen yogurt with double cream this time instead of whipping cream (click here for strawberry frozen yogurt). The whipping cream in my opinion gave a more ice cream like taste and the double cream gave it a creamy mousse taste. Chose whichever you prefer.
-This frozen yogurt/mousse is really easy and quick to make. There are only about 3 steps!
