When was the last time you sat down and ate an ice cream sandwich or a derivative there of? For me it has been ages. Yet, I still remember that soft cookie exterior with the firm smooth ice cream beneath. The cookie was nothing special, the ice cream was adequate at best, though the experience was truly great. Last evening we began working with, what I think I will not be able to leave alone, small ice cream sandwiches. Of course being me I began with olives. We made a black olive crisp which we used to sandwich our olive chip ice cream. We served the sandwich with ground and sandy olives, olive brine caramel and young epazote. Imagine the possibilities with flavors and textures that we can work with. And what if we went more savory or just served the ice cream sandwich at the bar along with a martini or used hot ice cream in the winter? My brain is now working again, it stalled midday yesterday and is only now restarting.
