The final ‘black and white’ post and the Rugby World Cup is over! The All Blacks were triumphant (as if there was ever any doubt), New Zealand having played host to teams and tourists from 20 nations in stadiums around the country. I am a little sad the party is over, and thought a sweet treat would be a great way to round out the month. So, celebrate the All Blacks win and commiserate the end of the World Cup with this liquorice ice-cream, served up with dark chocolate tuiles for a little crunch.
The ice-cream recipe is one my mum makes – it is really simple as it doesn’t involve making a custard base or churning. Feeling lazy? You can cheat by buying 1L of vanilla ice-cream, softening it, mixing through the vanilla pod scrapings, ground anise, grated chocolate and liquorice, then returning to the freezer for at least two hours before serving.
