I made basil ice cream as kind of an experiment. It turned out so good that i served it that night. My cooks all enjoyed it after they reluctantly tasted it.

Cool

Then there's red bean... one of the Chinese restaurants here has both green tea (delish) and red bean ice cream. I haven't tried it only because their servings are too large for one person and no one wants to share it with me! Peasants!

Ohhh Chopstix, you've just inspired me! I make macarons all the time but never thought to "rose them up". I've got a bottle of rose water in the cupboard and now I will try flavouring them that way next time. Thank-you!

I guess weird is relative. I have had folks tell me that kulfi which is an icecream seasoned with cardamom, saffron and assorted nuts is weird to them. To my palate it's simply rich and divine.

How about lychee chopstixs. I love lychee icecream. I would hope people don't find it weird. Also nothing weird about mango or coconut icecream. They are delicious.

I have had a coconut sorbet which was made with coconut water and it was incredibly delicious.

Also I am not sure if you or sizzles have tasted palm fruit. It's not heart of palm but is this mushy white fruit (resembling the palm of your hand) that has a very delicate taste (almost like the coconut cream you eat from a fresh coconut). I have had icecream made of that as well and it was very very good.

Also savory icecreams seem to be in vogue right now. If you look at fancy plating a lot of chefs pair dishes with herb based icecreams.

That actually sounds delicious to me!!!

I do not find anything weird about coconut or mango ice cream. Those seem like obvious ice cream flavors. If lychee's were more common around here then I would think the same of them.

There is a fantastic ice cream place near me located in a little strip mall
and it is owned by a family from Egypt (I think). They make some very
exotic ice creams that are so good.

I'd have to say that lavender flavor and rosemary are two of the most
unusual flavors I've ever come across.

Piccolina, the rose-flavored macarons I've had are colored baby pink. First time I tried them was in Paris, where the Laduree shop window was decorated purely with macarons in different pastel colors and flavors, beautifully arranged in pyramids. Now I see the same stuff on display at high-end pattisseries in Manila and Bangkok.

Good luck with your rose macarons!
