This is the “house special dessert” at China Moon, a refreshing spicy ice cream made from an infusion of fresh ginger. It involves making a custard base—something you may not have done before—but rest assured it is an easy process and the results are fabulous.
This is one ice cream formula I’ve not reduced to a “light” ice cream. The flavor is so superb, I’ve never wanted to toy with it.
Serving Suggestions: I’ve eaten vatfuls of this ice cream in the nude (both me and the ice cream), and it needs no garnish to be delicious. However, Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce was literally made for it; the yin-yang contrast of hot and cool is stunning. Fresh strawberries and/or Cappuccino Coins are other worthy counterpoints.
