Possibly, but probably not. Darl's work schedule would make it very difficult right now.

When her schedule does normalize we will have to make plans though. You and I will try that ice cream and we won't share with anyone else

I'm not sure if you've heard of Heston Blumenthal, he's an English chef who works at the Fat Duck in a town called Bray in England. One of the things on his menu is smokey bacon and egg ice cream.

He does snail porridge too if youre interested... :)

Good luck with your rose macarons!
How very gorgeous sounding (all the more reason to try and get to Paris one day! (Or Manilla/Bangkok too.) Thank-you Chopstix I am so glad you gave me this macaron idea

my favorite was always Malted Milk Ball, a light chocolate malt iceream with littl emalted milk balls in it. Perfected by Kohr Brothers Ice Cream and Frozen Custard when they were still making hard ice creams. Alas, they have gone to all frozen custards, but still, what fine soft ice cream they make! New Jersey and Delaware with a few franchise outposts elsewhere.

Hi Shamalicious (great user name), Welcome to DC! (Boy, I bet that Ishbel going to be happy when she sees you on the boards, she's our resident Scottish member )

Pistachio is so lovely, I like the soft colour that is has. Very nice with chocolate cake or fresh peaches.

Pistacchio flavour is among the most popular in Italy, or at least in Roma. They are sooooo good!! But if you are going to buy this and it is bright green, avoid it, they are made with artificial flavour. The real pistacchio, though some very good ones can get somewhat green, but often brownish. When you make it yourself and do want that green shade, peeling the nuts will help!!

^ You're a lucky person, Rome is a great place for food. I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday in Italy. Got to say, the best i had on that holiday was in Florence (Firenze) though. A very long display cabinet running down the entire length of the shop, just down a sidestreet near that big tall building. Can't remember its name now for some reason.
