Look I know that down here (Southern Hemisphere) we are looking forward to summer…we have had a couple of sunny days, but then out of nowhere, rain and more rain…so in an ode to the Gods of summer I am hoping this recipe may get us a little closer to balmy nights, beach days and of course loads of ice cream! As some of you will know I have happily welcomed Azzura Gelati to Team Tenina, so make sure you keep a watch out for their award winning,amazing new Vanilla bean ice cream at an IGA store near you.
On another note…apart from ice cream judging and eating…I have also been filmed for SuperKitchenMachine's first video interview, part one of which interview is now out and about on a Facebook page or YouTube video channel near you!
