It's Wednesday! Hooray, I get to watch t.v. tonight and see those awesome chefs compete on Top Chef. I'm not normally much on "reality" t.v. shows but I must admit I have been a Top Chef junkie since the very first show. Personally, I am rooting for
either Carla or Antonia, although all of the chefs that are left are very formidable. I also hope that Anthony Bourdain is judging tonight, I'm nuts about his blog!
I recently got and ice cream maker as a present and I've had a wonderful time making and creating different ice cream flavors. Yesterday I decided to do chocolate ice cream for the first time and it was less than successful. The texture has a grainy feel
on my tongue and I am not sure what I did wrong. I melted my chocolate in a double boiler and I'm sure that no water got in it and it melted nicely but I had a hard time blending in the milk without it lumping up on me. I whisked it and whisked it, added
the cream and other ingredients, chilled it and put it in the machine everything worked like usual, except the texture of the final product. Any ideas or suggestions? Have a great day everyone!
