day 982 / 81:
back in August, we went to the King's Cross Ice-cream Festival held in Granary Square. Granary Square, is a new public space in the King's Cross development and is situated on a historic railway goods yard dating back to the 1850s. it's a beautiful space and i'd be very keen to visit more events here in the future.
the ice-cream festival brought together talented ice-cream makers from around the country, who set up their vans around the square and scooped to the crowds until the last icy morsel was gone. the festival celebrated ice-cream from it's originator (the cow) to traditional methods and then onto the latest technology (liquid nitrogen).
Limi got to milk a fibre-glass cow; pet goats, sheep and cows; build sandcastles on the beach and wash off in the fountains.....and for most of that, either my mum or A. stood in our chosen ice-cream queue for Ginger's Comfort Emporium, only to see every flavour except two sell-out. so instead of our first choices of hazelnut, truffle and chocolate or salted caramel and peanut butter ball.....we had to make do with marmalade on toast and orange blossom sorbet. they were surprisingly delicious. even though i'm not a fan of marmalade, it really was an incredible flavour: chewy, creamy and toasted. Limi loved it. i had the orange blossom sorbet which transported me straight back to Marrakesh and i felt like i'd dived head-first into a refreshing, riad fountain. so, if you ever see the pink Ginger's Comfort Emporium van in your neighbourhood, i definitely suggest that you join the queue.....it's worth the wait.
