The boss and I earned our ice cream from a five mile walk in the heat of an Eilat Saturday. Not quite insane; we wore hats and took water. The weather vane of ice cream for us is Coldstone, an American small chain that mixes up your creation on a marble slab as you watch.
Pauline is so up to the mark it's amazing. In fact we both rate Paulina as our favourite ice cream in the world.
It's owned by Nir, an Israeli married to a Brazilian. The recipes are hers and the "chef" is Nir. I chose dark chocolate and passion fruit, the boss chose cappuccino and the cookies/praline. The dark chocolate was so amazing, I asked the server how it was made. Within minutes, Nir came out of the kitchen and told us: everything from the percentage of cocoa butter to the grade of the other ingredients.
He disappeared back into the kitchen only to return a few minutes later to ask if we wanted to see it being made! You can imagine we didn't need asking twice!
We stood at the kitchen doorway and watched as this silky smooth white chocolate creation slipped out of the ice cream maker to which he added some Italian cherry puree and finished off the tray by hand.
It's worth saying that we are particularly partial to ice cream and this really is the best non home made (though it clearly IS home made) either of us has ever tasted in our combined 119 years experience.
As I say, miss it at your peril!
