For me texture with ice cream and sorbet is just about everything with taste right up there too of course.
I was an ice cream judge (oh the shame of it) for many years at the Perth Royal Show and a very big portion of the marks allocated to any given ice cream are based on texture when the scoop is initially, well, scooped! If it breaks, that is bad, if it doesn't scoop, that is bad. So many factors.
The benefit of a churner is that it increases the volume by introducing air into the mix thus making it imminently more 'scoopable'. We are happy to be offering The Whole Scoop participants a discount on a couple of the best commercial churners from Aussie supplier to the stars, Restaurant Equipment. So if you are in the market for a churner, jump on in to the course and be churning this beauty in no time.
Best of all, come join us on the Insider Club to have extra Thermomixery each and every month! #recipesthatwork #youcandoit
