Ice Cream 101: Learn to Make Delicious Ice Cream at Home

Ice Cream 101: Learn to Make Delicious Ice Cream at Home

Ice cream is one of the best inventions in the world. It's right up there with the wheel or electricity and it's hard to argue otherwise. I mean, who doesn't love a cold, creamy scoop of ice cream?

The problem is that most of the ice cream we buy from the supermarket has overrun (the amount of air in ice cream to increase its volume) of around 100%, which is a lot when compared with the 25% overrun that we typically get from high-end brands that sometimes can cost an arm and a leg. But that shouldn't stop you from enjoying great ice cream at home! 

It's a good thing chef and blogger Nicole Gaffney put up a class to teach us how to make ice cream at home in Skillshare. This way, we can make great, affordable ice cream at home.

This class is that she covers all the basics of making good ice cream at home - from the 'base' recipe, cooking techniques, and the equipment that you'd need. I have probably made over one hundred batches of ice cream at home before I stumbled upon her class and it's too bad she didn't put one up sooner. She covers everything you need to know in less than 15 minutes which otherwise took me days to learn from going over ice cream books!

I followed her recipes step-by-step and made 2 ice cream flavors - Ube Keso and Twix Vanilla. She really knows her stuff because both flavors were gone within 3 days!

I recommend you get yourself a premium Skillshare membership to start learning from Nicole and countless others on how to be a better cook. Skillshare also has a number of classes ranging from business to photography.

What are you waiting for? Make your first batch of ice cream now!
