Christmas Turkish Delight Frozen Torte!
I know that sounds crazy to my northern readers, but as the temperature starts to head into the 30's (Celsius that is), our thoughts down under turn to Christmas, and ways to keep the feasting cool and casual, around the pool or water somewhere, somehow...what better conglomeration than Ice Cream and Christmas Pudding? Great in the centre of your Christmas table or really charming as individual serves, this recipe is a beauty, if I say so myself. More of a torte than a Christmas pudding, a piece d'resistance after a stunning meal. Hard to believe how fast the year has gone, but let's stay away from that topic shall we? Christmas Ice Cream Torte.
This is the cover pic recipe from my first published cookbook, For Food's Sake. If you don't have it yet, you should go and get it. It was my passion project and I still love this cookbook. It is full of great pictures and recipes and it is cheaper than ever!
