Vendée Ice Cream - Vive Glaces Maison!

French ice cream or "Glaces Maison" was something I discovered last year when visiting the Vendée .

Every ice cream parlour we visited had something exceptional to offer in their range of homemade ice cream. They had the most amazing range of colors and flavors - including electric blue Smurf ice cream!

Why am I talking about this now?

Well, I saw a tv travel show the other day that featured the part of France that we visited and they focused on the locally produced food. They mentioned the local meats, breads and cheeses but they forgot the ice cream! So to redress the balance here is a page listing some of my previous ice cream blog posts explaining why French ice cream is so fabulous .... Glaces Maison

PS. If you ever go to the Vendée be sure to visit the fabulous donjon at Bazoges-en-Pareds. It's like travelling back in time!
