A cold pleasure


The warm days are coming with large steps. They bring scents and taste sensations and ask for light and refreshing feelings.
Fruity, floral or in harmony with the notes of the hot season, ice creams popularize the heat in a cold pure pleasure.
Despite the ephemeral (always made for immediate consumption), homemade ice creams distinguish themselves by its entirely natural ingredients and its extreme simplicity.
Moreover, they are very digestive, which makes them the ideal dessert for the outcome of a meal or a sweet and simple treat for anytime.
With closed eyes, a huge blue wave invades the palate and delight gives way to thaw the full acceptance of the senses …. Who is not a melting for an ice cream?
