Glace/Sorbet French Style

Is this  French Ice Cream Truck not the cutest thing????????
Not to mention the L'Homme serving it!

The French love their Glaces, Sorbets, and Granitas Both Sweet and Savory.
Above vanilla ice cream with grains of fennel.

This is peach ice cream with rosemary........Gotta try this one.

Left to right and then down: Almond Granita, Coffee ice cream with Pignon nuts,
Icecream cake (do I see some pistachios in there?) and Nougat Cake.

Now for the Savory Glaces Frozen yoghurt (sheep) with a coulis on top of pureed Arugula in olive oil.

Top left Tomato Sorbet with fish tartare, Right  Savory Glace with green and red tomato tartare,
Lower right a glace of basil with balsamic vinagre and tomato...... YUM!
Recipies in the June /July Cote Paris (this was a really good issue!)
I'm going to give some of these a try!!!!!
