On a recent visit to The Tavern, Cheltenham, we loved their take on a pudding menu. Called Sundae Service Menu you can choose exactly how you’d like your Ice Cream Sundae. There are eight ice creams, including the usual suspects, Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry, plus Pistachio, Malted Banana, Coffee, Mint Choc Chip and Salted Caramel, eight different toppings, things like Brownie Pieces, Boozy Raisins, Smashed Meringue and six sauces, to choose from. You fill in a form, tear it off and give it to your waiter or waitress, sit back and wait for your Sundae to arrive – Yum!
The mathematicians amongst you can work out how many different combinations that is, we know it’s a lot and plan on working our way through them this Summer!
If you fancy a homemade version have a look at our tried and tested recipes and invent your own. You can’t go wrong with a Vanilla and Salted Caramel base and I love a scoop of Strawberry Ice Cream in a Sundae. Top up with fresh fruit, meringue, biscuit and brownie pieces.
Cotswold Life Magazine have just published their Summer edition, it’s packed full of places to visit this Summer and their top 10 places to buy an ice cream caught our eye, take a look and plan a trip to an ice cream parlour or farm shop in the Cotswolds soon!
