My very first nitrogen-frozen ice cream @WOOP WOOP, Berlin (DE)

It’s time for another recommendation in Berlin! Woop Woop makes the freshest ice cream ever! They prepare the basis of their ice cream with milk, cream, fruit, chocolate, herbs or spices before adding liquid nitrogen (-196°C) to freeze the mixture in 30 seconds, in front of customers. The most fun ice cream experience I recently…

A day at the Salon du Chocolat, Paris (FR)

Going to the Salon du Chocolat in Paris has been on my wishlist for years! I love chocolate & have always been impressed by television coverage of the Salon du Chocolat in Paris. I marked this year’s edition in my calendar months ahead, but only really made the decision to go one week before it…

Out and about around Killarney & Dublin (IE)

Ireland is a beautiful island that I highly recommend you to visit! Beautiful coastal routes with breathtaking scenery, rugged cliffs, clean beaches, colourful towns, picturesque castle or abbey ruins, countryside covered with lush green hilly fields and cute sheep or relaxed cows… these are some of the things I associate with Ireland and love about…

Discovering Malaysia & cendol

Here I am in Germany, Autumn has begun, temperatures are getting cooler and holidays seem far away. It’s quite nice for me take a break from Autumn and think back about my warm holidays in Malaysia a few years ago! Let me take you there for a short virtual trip! As you have figured out…

Ice cream street art… in Cologne (DE)

I will keep it short today: you’ll have to be a little more patient until I publish my next recommendation of a nice ice cream shop. Today I’ll just share with you a photo of ice cream street art that I came across and liked! I spotted it in Cologne near an ice cream shop…

Il Gelato di Ferigo, Cologne (DE)

I love Il Gelato di Ferigo’s motto: “Healthy, natural and particularly creamy ice cream” (translated from German). Under this motto they pride themselves for using fresh and natural ingredients and they avoid using artificial flavours and preservatives. The Italian-owned Il Gelato di Ferigo ice cream shop has been in Cologne since 1994 and offers an…

California Pops, Berlin (DE)

During my last visit to Berlin, a friend of a friend took us to California Pops’ small shop in Kreuzberg. Their popsicles looked very attractive: colourful, shiny and frost-free. Not only did they look wonderful, they tasted great too! It’s nice to know that the handmade popsicles at California Pops are free of artificial colourings…

Eispiraten, Berlin (DE)

On the last day of my last trip to Berlin, a friend sent a link to Berlin’s top ice cream shops with unusual flavours… in other words this list was showing exactly what I am looking for! (For those of you who understand German, here’s Mit Vergnügen’s article about 11 unusual ice cream flavours you…

Vineyards, glazed tiles & ice cream in Beaune (FR)

Beaune is in the middle of the Burgundy wine-making region, where many Grand Cru wines are produced, mainly from Pinot noir and Chardonnay grapes. We set our mind on spending holidays in Burgundy after reading reviews highlighting its beautiful countryside with green hills, its medieval villages and its 1000 km of signposted cycling trails. I…

Glaces Glazed, Paris (FR)

In my last post about Paris, I mentioned having selected three ice cream shops to try. I’m happy to say that I have now tried the second one! 🙂 & Glaces Glazed, as it is called, is well worth mentioning here! “Funky” is how I would describe Glaces Glazed’s ice cream! They offer a different…
