Today's Good IdeaLimitless ice cream pleasure at “Eiscafé Veneziano”
Honey and orange with dates, macadamia-caramel, white chocolate with cranberries and nuts from Piemont… just three out of roughly 120 flavours that Michael Frank has developed with his team in the ice laboratory of “Eiscafé Veneziano”. This lets you choose from more than 50 daily flavours available at the ice cream counter on the Place d’Armes in Luxembourg-city. While we try out the latest “Summer Ice Specials“ (absolutely delicious!!), Michael tells us of his love for ice cream and his goal of always offering his customers new varieties. Besides the classic choices, Eiscafé Veneziano is, not surprisingly, renowned for its innovative and totally extravagant ice creams. Everything is developed in the see-through glass ice cream laboratory, where you can watch Michael and his team going about their work. During winter, this is where they produce their varied ice parfaits, ice cookies (semi freddo), Tartufo and much, much more. We also recommend their products “Fruit Yoghurt kisses”; yoghurts made from homemade fruit purees. And we must also mention that at Eiscafé Veneziano, customers like to meet up for small snacks such as panini sandwiches or crepes.Read on >
Today's Good IdeaNew potatoes with colourful vegetables.
Don’t be fooled! You recognise new potatoes by their skin, which is always so soft that it doesn’t need peeling –just scrub them, and the peel comes of by itself! When the first new potatoes of the year are served in Luxembourg, not much is needed to make them tasty: vegetable farmer Claude Kirsch from the Luxembourgish “Maarteverband” recommends melted butter and parsley. This is poured over potatoes that have been boiled for 20-25 minutes in salty water. Ready! These would perfectly complement a veal stew or – for vegetarians – steamed cauliflower. Given that you also eat with your eyes, we recommend a colourful mix of cauliflower, taking advantage of the four different types of cauliflowers harvested over the spring and summer months: classic white, as well as orange, purple and green. The intensity of flavour also increases in this order. Another tip from the expert: always prepare the purple cauliflower in a different pot, as the colour rubs off. Just think of mixing your whites with some purple, green and orange in the laundry – everything turns grey…. Go on; visit the weekly farmer’s market! Discover the new potatoes and many other “Farmer’s market Good Ideas”!Read on >
