Mediterranean Ice Cream Recipes

The Mediterranean is the Home of Ice Cream Recipes....in Greece and Italy it is Gelato, in France, Glace, Helado in Spain and Sorvete in Portugal.
I have lots of the old favourite recipes, but with a cutting edge twist. These are delicious, quick, easy and step by step.
Once you've tasted them you will never buy any ice cream again.
I'll show you the basic ingredients that can be used for all ices, perfected after years of experimenting.
And when you've looked at the basic recipe you can link to all the other Icecream recipes via the links below.
