Cuisine: Rolled (Thai) Ice Cream
Rating: Looks cool, tastes just okay
After dimsum in Boston we went down the street to get some Thai rolled (stir fried) ice cream.
It’s downstairs half in the basement.
You select your flavor and they (slowly) make it up for you.
Basically they pour the ice cream mix on a very cold refrigerated disk.
They spread it out thin and it freezes against the surface.
Then they scrape it into rolls.
Here is a cookies and cream being made
Cookies and cream ice cream. They add whipped cream, chocolate sauce etc.
My friend Mike shows displaying the goods.
Making mine, chocolate hazelnut.
Ferre-roll rocher. rolls of chocolate with Nutella and Nutella drizzle and hazelnuts. It looks great, and the sauce is fine, but the ice cream rolls are very hard, chewy, and crystalized. The cold plate isn’t an ideal way to freeze ice cream as it’s very cold and there is no smoothing or aeration so it develops very large crystals.
Cool process (if slow) but the result doesn’t actually taste that great (coming from an ice cream/gelato geek).
