At the end now of the busy summer season. There’s been camels’ milk ice-cream, Smorgasboards, awards, fun and frollics. I’ll be on the Chorlton Food market and Beech Rd bonfire night party over winter and of course, out on home delivery. Get in touch if you want to book Ginger for your event next year.

… For ‘This Monkey’s gone To Heaven’ (roast banana, caramel, and peanut). The judges were seduced by it’s fruity, toffee-y, salty goodness. Or they’re all just big Pixies fans.

“Weddingtons”

Sarah and Tim got married on the 28th May, and Ginger was there hosting a cocktail waiter, who was very talented as well as being clean and tidy. Thanks. Turns out the soft ice-cream machine is a perfect bar!
Sarah wore Weddingtons – wedding wellies… Well I never.

Catch me on the South Manchester Street Markets… Chorlton is every 3rd Saturday of the month, West Didsbury every 4th. I’ll also be on the Marple Farmers Market on Easter Sunday, and Manchester’s Northern Quarter Royal Wedding Street party on 29th April. To illustrate this, here is Marco Pierre White. Look I’m sorry if you’ve seen this countless times on Facebook and Twitter, but y’know. It’s Marco Pierre White.

Awwright Treacle?!

Having lived around Chorlton for nigh on 15 years (minus a brief interlude in the North), I felt like I was selling from my back yard on Saturday at the market. It was a bit like Sesame St, or Albert Square when Eastenders was good. I used to love Eastenders. Awwright treacle! See ya next time, every 3rd Saturday of the month.
BTW – the pic is the new Cocoa Marble Malt.

Too cold? Man up, Manchester! Piccadilly Gardens.

So, already planning next year.. selling hot water bottles in Death Valley, and lifeboats in the Congo.
Well, it has been difficult to tempt the uninitiated into ice cream in this weather, but those who do, all come back for more. And that’s the name of the game. It’s been nice seeing you. And you.
And It’s such a thrill driving onto Piccadilly Gardens. As a driver you can appreciate the liberty of just rocking up in a city centre. Like the good old days.

Ginger is a slut, and will be anything to anyone. Here in London, she is a mobile ice cream bar, doncha know… I didn’t capture half of the talent on display.. so busy with Ginger, the queues were twice round the block to get in… Fantastic day.. The evening banquet which we, the society members watched from the 3rd floor bar, was a riot of food inspired performance, music, and culinary brilliance. Read more »

Spending time on making some interesting new flavours. This is my favourite – Honey & Tahini. Velvety, sweet with a nutty, savoury edge.
I’ll be at London’s Brickhouse on the 25th September for the Experimental food society’s annual Specacular, alongside some amazing exhibitors showing off their incredible skills, and culinary weirdness! Exciting and scary. Mainly exciting……. looking forward to seeing Southern pals. Read more »
