Glacier Crisis

October 13, 2006

Hmmm… I’ve had a bit of a setback on the ice cream making front. The day after receiving my new Magimix Le Glacier for my birthday, I was terribly excited to get things going. The Frog has scored a wonderful coup with this prezzie.

And then, my friends, tragedy struck.

You see, we’re going to have to move house. That’s right, the ‘pre-freeze for 12 hours’ part of Le Glacier does not fit into the freezer in my flat. I am completely gutted. You can imagine the various contortions that I’ve been through to try to make it fit, but without a blow-torch, I’m a bit stuck at the moment.

It’s kind of like getting a remote control car for Christmas and then realising that it requires triple A batteries and you only have a pair of D’s.

Le Glacier

Hurrah! After many years of nagging, I have finally received a Magimix Glacier ice cream maker. Admittedly, it’s a bit late for the fresh fruit sorbet season, or the granita season, but just in time for the walnut maple creamy deliciousness ice cream!

The Magimix Le Glacier has a 1.5 L capacity, and requires you to put the bowl in the freezer for 12 hours prior to use. I’m looking forward to some ice creamy deliciousness and will update you with progress!

Happiness! Gadgets!
