Ice cream day report – Squires Kitchen International School of Cake Design, Sugarcraft, Baking, Chocolate and Patisserie

Ice cream day report

Wednesday 18th May

On May 10th we held an exclusive ice cream tasting and demonstration at The Grange, and what a day it was! Ice cream specialist Robin Weir demonstrated how to make different types of ice cream and gave a talk on its history, physics and chemistry.

Guests were able to have a go themselves at making an ice cream, sorbet or granita and it certainly looked like fun – here is the tasty looking menu from the day:

• Granita di caffè espresso
• Marmalade ice cream Philadelphia-style using an antique Mrs Marshall Ice Cream Machine
• Prince of Wales ice cream (sugar ice cream) featuring demerara and muscovado
• Lemon sorbet
• Grape juice lollies
• Rich vanilla ice cream
• Ultimate chocolate ice cream
• ‘Frrrrrrrozen’ hot chocolate

“Thanks for a super morning demo today. Most enjoyable. The chance to hear Robin and Caroline enthuse about ice-creams and then to sample their recipes was a joy. Tapping into their knowledge was a privilege. Really high calibre guest demonstrators. Thanks again for such a well thought-out event, I'd very much like to be on your emailing list for similar events. I had thought that Squires only offered courses and events about cakes and baking… I'm delighted to find that there is more on offer.  The school is a gorgeous building and environment - bright and beautiful.

Thanks again”

After refreshments, each guest took away a goody bag and a signed copy of the ultimate ice cream book, Ice Creams, Sorbets and Gelati by Caroline and Robin Weir (Grub Street) and went home full of knowledge (and ice cream!).
