ice cream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream (with olive oil)


just to prove to you quite how much i might be rammed up my own british arse, i should divulge that my contribution to last saturday's italian food was garnered NOT from the finest italian cookbook one could find, but, of course, from everyone's favorite pasty-faced english boy: Jamie Oliver. AND. not only did i use jamie's expertize to guide my way into italian cuisine. i elected to "make" what might well be the most lazy-assed, rank-sounding dessert on the planet. here it is.

1-2 globs of good quality vanilla icecream (breyers worked for me)
small spinkle of sea salt.
lightly drizzle with the greenest olive oil you can find (i used trader joe's unfiltered).

everyone was game, and everyone was scared. and let me tell you, while it might not have been the delectable butternut squash ravioli with sage butter (sigh...) made by my lovely pal, it was amazingly good. i mean, amaaaazingly good.

seriously, i highly recommend it. and according to jamie, it's all the rage in italy. so there you go.

DAMN! I wish I would have seen this before I hit Target this morning. I bought mint ice cream for our green-themed menu for tomorrow night, but this would have been way cooler.

That recipe seems sacreligious.

But then, I used to get a carmel, mint and malt monstrosity back when I was a lad, so what do I know?

I would drink olive oil out of the bottle so I think I understand that recipe. Pure fat. On top of sweet fat. How can you go wrong with that?

I saw Jamie prepare this fine treat on Richard and Judy - unfortunately I don't think 99p Olive Oil would sit too well on top of 99p Neopolitian Ice Cream.

I'll stick with Monkeys Blood* for my sins.


*Not actually Monkeys Blood.
