What is your favorite dessert? I always say macaroons simply because I feel that I can keep it in control and eat just one at a time. When it comes to ice cream, I am unstoppable.
I remember how Ben and I went to Italy for the first time a couple of years ago, and it was the ice cream heaven. We even created our own saying, ‘Pizza-pasta-gelato’ that properly expressed our vacation diet. Over the trip to Moscow, we enjoyed the classic crème brûlée ice cream in a waffle cone at the GUM Department Store. In fact, this is perhaps the only place in the city that still follows the original USSR recipe still remembered by many generations of Russians.
My trip to Minsk brought great memories of the classic vanilla ice cream in a cake cone (my parents still remember its price, 19 kopeks, which meant a fortune for the Russian kids at that time). I tried really hard to find the famous in the 1990s ice cream Lakomka, a tube-shape delicatessen made with a heavy cream, but it seems like the production of this ice cream has been stopped.
While at the Bahamas, we tried a unique combination of white chocolate, raspberry mousse, avocado shortbread, and vanilla ice cream. In Boca Raton, we were regulars at the Serendipity 3 where we indulged with Frrrozen Hot Chocolate and all kinds of delicious ice creams. Perhaps, my most favorite flavor was a salty caramel, but I also couldn’t say ‘no’ to vanilla and pistachio.
