{scoops} of summer.

Posted on July 23, 2014

In lieu of the the perfectly absurd amounts of gelato consumed during my recent voyage à paris, I thought it most appropriate to feature some frozen flashback scoops of sweetness here on Tutus & Tea! It is #NationalIceCreamMonth for goodness sakes…but then again, isn’t every month deserving of summer’s most welcome treat? Let’s have a quick chat about Sorbet & Soft Serve & a lot o’ gelato… Frozen Yogurt, Twisted Cones and Double Scoop Cups ~ The decision is yours…and perhaps the most luxurious problem you’ll have to face all summer (year—let’s be honest ;) long. In France a day was not complete without at least three complementary flavors of the creamiest gelato known to mankind. I found myself with a particular weakness towards anything nutella, pistachio, or fleur de lait but was…

23 calls for {ginger ice cream}.

Posted on January 3, 2014

Vintage Scoopers. French Ceramics. Madagascar Vanilla Beans & Ginger.         Do you know what such things call for…? Come close and I will tell you. This divine combination calls for nothing less than a Birthday bowl of Homemade Ginger Ice Cream! It’s true. Among resolutions and respite, I have found myself in the presence of such decadence and couldn’t be happier to share with you these celebratory flavors — the discreet spice of freshly grated ginger brews famously with plump vanilla beans… sinful amounts of milk, cream and sugar…some churning, freezing and scooping…I can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year! The recipe I used comes from  The Kinfolk Table Cookbook – the loveliest collection of recipes for…

Very Berry Ice Cream

Posted on May 2, 2012

Do you know what I love about Sunny afternoons…? Strolling down Nyhavn to the buzz of café life, the smell of waffles & most importantly, the cones of ice-cream cradled indulgently by locals & tourists alike. If the weather is anywhere over 50 here in Copenhagen, it is reason enough to break out the scooper and head for the sun. Naturally, I have no objection. What better way to prepare for summer’s finest then lovely bowls/cones of homemade Ice Cream in the Spring?? …my sentiments exactly. So, now that my little ice cream machine is on a churning roll, I’ve decided to embrace fresh berries, cold cream, exotic spices & all of the freedoms that come with personal flavor favorites…This week’s Scoop du Jour?…

Stravinsky & Saffron

Posted on April 23, 2012

With only two performances left of the lavish Lady of the Camellias, the moods, melodies & melodramatic scenes at the ballet have taken quite a turn ~ …think ‘leotard ballets’ and the refreshing (albeit slightly stressful) counts of Stravinsky’s score, as we prepare ourselves for friday’s premiere of the Balanchine & Stravinsky program ~ a fantastic trio of George Balanchine’s Apollo, Agon and Symphony in 3 Movements. I think we are all enjoying the contrast of these two programs which exemplify, almost comically, the antithesis of each other by every means (costumes, sets, music, time periods…) I find and love that the complexity and extravagance of one leaves you humbly content with the simplicity of the other ~ a huge plus of dancing in a Company…

Home-Made Ice Cream & Crumble

Posted on July 8, 2011

Ice Cream is something that I continue to enjoy all year round…rain, snow or shine~ But I have a particular appreciation for the cold creamy goodness on the dog days of summer when anything in reference to cool sounds tempting… Today I decided to be adventuresome & made use of a few sun-ripened mangos that my brother brought home… Into the mixer it went with a delicate mix of orange blossom honey and vanilla, a variation on this recipe from one of my favorite inspiration blogs, and a mere 45 minutes later I found myself sitting cooled & content. …It was about this time that I found a bag of fresh-frozen blueberries and came to the only probable conclusion of baking my first of many Summer Crumbles. A Very Berry Crumble I…

Family & Frivolity

Posted on October 18, 2010

My brief blogging hiatus was due to the most special visit I recently received from my dearest parents… I assure you it was worth the wait, as I have plenty of photos to show for the magical week we spent together…Cooking, flea marketing, eating, dancing, sleeping, performing, and enjoying the crispness of a Copenhagen Fall. The opportunity to perform for my family is the ultimate redemption for the time that we spend apart as I am living abroad… It is the most rewarding experience to share my hard work and passion for what they have supported me in doing for the past 10 years of my life. I am so thankful, and I humbly dedicate this very post to them both. Here’s to you…
