Mission: Ice cream run. Destination: Serendipity!!! Person who got roped in: The considerate Herr Moutarde:)
So we’re off to Serendipity Natural Ice Cream and Sorbet, which is conveniently and dangerously close by. I first had a taste of Serendipity goodness at a dinner party held by my uncle (who is a fantastic chef), where he incorporated the Serendipity Coconut and Kaffir Lime sorbet into one of his magnificent dessert creations. I was instantly hooked.
Herr Moutarde and I have a tendency to throw portion control out the window when faced with things like ice cream, so we decided to buy only one little tub that day – and I was given the task of choosing that one special flavour. Well, I had difficulty narrowing down the multiple flavours and ended up getting two, the Fig, Honey and Pistachio (150ml), and Peanut Butter Disaster (500mL). Other flavours that made it on my (long) shortlist were Mangos and Cream, Super Fudge Brownie and the Strawberry and Cointreau sorbet.
Peanut butter ice cream with nutty praline and ripples of dark chocolate sauce
When I asked if this was any good, the girl in the store looked at me with a knowing glint in her eye and told me it was part of a new collection and that she herself, couldn’t get enough. Good sign lol. It’s delicious, with crispy praline pieces swirled through this creamy, gooey peanut butter icecream. Despite being the bigger tub, we finished this first (it went much too quickly for my liking lol). If you’re a fan of the peanut butter and chocolate combo, you have to try this:)
The taste of fig and honey was especially potent in this mix; I would have loved more pistachio, but overall still a tasty flavour combination.
The shop is located in an awkward place, since there really isn’t much else to do in the immediate area, but if you’re ever in the general Marrickville/Enmore/Newtown vicinity, it’s worth popping in to have a look. The staff wrap all purchased goods with a mound of paper so even if you’re driving a bit further to get home, melting shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
