In her opinion:
Salon de Provence is a lovely commune in Provence which we had the pleasure of visiting during our vacation in the South of France. Having had a large lunch in Les Baux-de-Provence earlier in the day, we were not exactly ready for dinner when we visited. We noticed that ice cream seemed like a popular choice for locals and tourist on this Sunday afternoon. Who can say no to ice cream anyway?
After being seated under an umbrella in Place Crousillat, our server filled our water glasses and allowed us to peruse the extensive ice cream menu. Can you say wow! As we looked around, I couldn't help but notice what other patrons were eating...these were large elegant glasses of ice cream...not some piddly little cup.
Edgar and I decided to order little man his own creation. A little ice cream clown.
This was basically vanilla ice cream with a cone hat, little m&m candies and chocolate and vanilla chantilly. Ethan seemed to enjoy this little creation.
Since these ice cream creations were huge, we opted to share one. We decided on the Montebelle. This was served in a gorgeous extra large pink martini glass. It had a scoop of both pistachio and strawberry ice cream and a scoop of raspberry sorbet, chantilly cream, cookie crumble, raspberry sauce, mikados and a love pistachio with a raspberry filling (Montebelle) French macaron.
This dessert was gorgeous and extremely large. The pistachio ice cream was excellent. The strawberry was fresh tasting without being to sweet. The raspberry sorbet lovely without being too tart. The cookie pieces add the right amount of crunch and the French macaron was just delectable.
Overall, I would say that Gourmand'ice rocks! What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Provence.
