Olive Oil Ice Cream

(6 servings)
Prep time: 12 hours (includes freezing time)
Cook time: 5 minutes
Total time: 12 hours
When I first heard of olive oil ice cream I wasn’t so sure. But my brother who lives in Portland swears by the Salt & Straw olive oil ice cream so I decided to try it out and be the judge myself. It’s summer anyway and I was itching to bust out my ice cream maker!
As soon as I tried it I was hooked! This ice cream is so rich and creamy and surprisingly the olive oil flavor goes really well with the cream. The edible gum is an optional ingredient but it adds additional smoothness to the ice cream. Hands down one of the best flavors I’ve had in a while.

Herbed Lamb Chops With Golden Beets And Parsnip Puree

Total Time: 60 minutes (as these can be done in parallel and timed)
  Rack of lamb: 30 minutes
  Parsnip Puree: 20 minutes
  Beets: 60 minutes

As soon as I saw Gordon Ramsey give a master class of his herbed lamb chops on an episode of Masterchef,  I took a trip down to my local butcher, bought a rack of lamb and tried out the recipe. It’s as delish as it looks and really simple to make. It’s been about a year since I first tried this recipe and it never fails me. This really is a tribute to one of the great chefs I closely follow. I have tweaked the recipe slightly from the original and also have my additions of parsnip puree and golden beets. I hope you guys love it!
