Spaghetti ice cream

came upon this on a food blog, and am intrigued. The unit looks like a commercial grade potato ricer!

Anyone ever had this stateside? It's supposed to be a big 'treat' in Europe. How did I miss this food fad?

Does the ice cream taste any 'different' after being riced? I like to play with my food, and have a ricer, so I just might try it!

  1. I had "schpa-get-i-ice" (spaghetti eis) at an italian eiscafe in Germany. It's lovely. Of course, it was riced with gelato and I don't think you could capture the dish here.

    1. re: shoo bee doo

      Due to the difference in density and texture, do you mean?

      Personally, I don't see why it wouldn't be possible to manage to make something similar to a Spaghettieis (or any other kiddie-targeted Eis dish, for that matter). In the case that it is possible to recreate it with ice cream, the ice cream shouldn't be affected in flavor.

    2. When it first opened, you could buy it at La Copa Loca in San Francisco. On a recent visit Melanie said they didn't sell it anymore.

      Here's an old report.

      You could get spaghetti pomedoro and spaghetti carbonara. IIRC, the sauce was strawberry or raspberry.

      Here's a site that sells the gadget that also makes lasagna ice cream and asparagus ice cream.

      Here's the pics from the site ... spaghetti



      Kind of a cool (heh) idea for making an ice cream pizza (scroll down).
