I've heard of great blue cheese ice cream and stellar black sesame and avocado flavors - but also a fair share of varieties that missed their mark. When done right, savory ice cream can broaden what even constitutes ice cream. Using a range of non-traditional dessert flavors means that savory ice cream doesn't even have to be relegated to dessert. The French Laundry cookbook includes a recipe for tomato sorbet to be served alongside an appetizer.
How do you feel about savory ice cream? What's your favorite flavor?
