196° Below Dessert Lab : Magical Dessert creations
Life is short. Eat dessert first. This saying is so true. We think that one should eat dessert first, second and last all the time but that is just us being silly and greedy (not guilty!)
For all you people out there who are just as crazy about desserts as we are, you must visit this dessert lab that specialises in creating unique dessert creations
is the temperature at which Liquid Nitrogen boils. All that means is that it is an extremely cold and that it can freeze any food solid within minutes. The advantages of freezing food this quickly is that the liquid nitro and in the case of ice creams, you get a much creamier and smoother texture. Nitrogen Ice Cream. We think it should be called Nice Cream.
We will not bore you with more facts that are scientific. All you need to know is that watching the process in which these desserts are made is magical and that the end products are delicious!
The dessert lab is open to the customers who wish to join the Dessert Technicians and watch the process. They make all the ice cream bases from scratch using only the best quality ingredients and all their options a vegetarian and vegan friendly. They have already pre-set combination for sundaes on their menu but the best part is that they allow you to join in the creations and encourage you to make the wackiest combos of flavours that you can think of.
Watch while the ingredients go into the mixer and then as the magic happens with liquid nitrogen. While making your own dessert monster, you have to first choose a base and an ice cream flavour.
