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!
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).
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.
