I was just wondering - does anyone know if they use any kind of frozen ingredients or have any use for freezing? Not refrigeration, mind you - freezing in particular.

        given the prevalence of sorbets and ice creams on dessert menus, I'm saying yes.

        As far as other ingredients? Probably.
