We hope you agree it was worth waiting for. It took us a while to finally make a Hotel Chocolat ice cream because we didn’t want it to be ordinary. We wanted something no one had ever tasted before, so we went back to the cacao bean. Instead of making an ordinary chocolate ice cream, we decided to infuse ours with pure roasted cacao.
There were no recipes for what we wanted to do, so our chef David Demaison just started from scratch, crushing roasted cacao nibs into a fine powder and blending it with ice cream.
David came up with the idea of infusing a mix of Jersey milk and cream with the cacao nibs before removing them with a sieve. He left it for a couple of hours, then overnight. After 48 hours, the cream was transformed. “The cream changes to a subtle taupe colour as the nibs infuse,” says Angus. “You might think it was vanilla, but then you taste it and realise it really is something else.”
