Getting prep under way on a Saturday afternoon we play around with ideas of dishes for specials as we do every other day but we recently purchased an ice cream machine and we had chicken livers on the bits list so what to do ?
The bits list is the list of vegetables meats etc. that are not on in use on our menu but are to be used in specials.
Blue cheese is a common match with chicken livers but with the new ice cream machine just sitting their an experiment had to be done using a traditional vanilla ice cream recipe minus the vanilla a few slivers of Cashel blue cheese whisked into the warm ice cream base with 1 teaspoon of freshly coarsely ground black pepper then into the machine until frozen.
The result was a creamy ice cream that embraced the wonderful flavour of the cheese that paired so well with the livers and our red onion & bacon jam .
Have you tried any unusual flavours ?
