  2. If you had a lunch or dinners with steak try a green apple ice cream
  3. If you are vegetarian so your lunch was full of fresh salad and vegetables a coffee ice cream is better indicated
  4. And if your servings were rich in carrots or reds vegetables a green tea ice cream without any doubt
  5. If you are having some spicy Thai or Indian foods try coconut ice cream then
  6. Carpaccio is an Italian dish with raw meat different than seasoned raw ham or salami or other cold cut. But for all of them a Japanese melon ice cream will match all

Tips for ice cream menu' or list

To prepare a menu ice cream keeps in mind also the season. In winter you can abound of milk flavors like Gianduia, hazelnut, dolce latte, zabaglione, white chocolate, chocolate chips and in the summer dedicate more flavors in your menu ice cream to green tea, coconut, strawberry, sherbets and ice cream yogurt gelato in general like yogurt strawberry, yogurt raspberry, yogurt iberry ice cream and more. Also the topping ice cream is important. If you have many children as customer try to consider a price that include topping a buffet so they will have fun submerging the gelato with colored toppings. Also if you have many children consider keeping the temperature at eighteen below ice cream will not melt easy when kids will play with it: put lots of topping, moving all the scoops around to form an ice cream wall and so on, play and then eat it. You can create an ice cream fun club with a fidelity card to accumulate points or just once in a while give a promotion to the card holders and let this offer noted on the ice cream menu. If you use your own ice cream maker do not economize on hazelnut and pistachio gelato ice cream paste: these pastes are expensive and you should also use 100g per kilogram, not 50g. But better not have them in the menu’ than have poor imitations.

Ice cream and wine pairing?

Yes, ice cream and wine as ice cream and strong drinks together can be done. But you must be 21 years old minimum.
Just think about the affogato al caffe', the vanilla ice cream that is drown in to hot coffee. It is enough to add some grappa or other kind of liquor to have the first pair between ice cream or gelato and alcohol. In Italy is common in the summer to have a nice glass of red wine filled with pieces of peach. It easy and  immediate to think about a peach sherbet to combine with red wine. Just get the sherbet in small spherical parts and drop them in the wine. You can also use a strawberry sherbet instead. More exotic a mango sherbet shaped in slices in a glass of white dry wine. Better if wine from Veneto (Italy). You can easily find it in Thailand too. For a blueberry sherbet the idea is to water it with grappa or vodka. Rum raising ice cream with... rum! Also white chocolate with rum. Vanilla and milk flavor ice cream (fiordilatte) with whiskey or hazelnut with amaretto (liquor) or Malvasia (wine). Eventually we could even think about a small production of Pinot Noir sherbet. Waiting for that a lemon sherbet with limoncello or Sauvignon Blanc is also good. For something more sophisticated: raspberry ice cream in a cup with Californian light but dry red wine and some quality dark chocolate topping.
We can go on:

  1. Cherry sherbet with a liqueur Muscat with few pieces of walnuts
  2. A Madeira wine with caramel ice cream
  3. Dark chocolate ice cream with Porto, chocolate ice cream with Cabernet and some trace of icing sugar on top
  4. Pistacchio ice cream with sweet sparkling white wine or Passito. In this case wait the Passito melt the pistachio ice cream a bit
  5. Malbec and durian (very good!) or coconut ice cream
