Chef Sharma of the Grand Trunk Road restaurant has launched a set of tantalising and delightfully different mouth-watering ice cream flavours for the summer.
Flavours from India, Afghanistan and Pakistan have inspired the ice cream flavours, which are far more exciting than the norm. A world away from the vanilla by name, vanilla by nature or bog-standard chocolate, the new flavours devised by Chef Sharma for his diners enjoyment include:
Rose Petal & Avocado
Amazingly creamy and makes for a gorgeously thick ice cream that is surprisingly light, the addition of rose-petal extract gives this amazing ice cream a fun ‘Grand Trunk Road’ twist that avocado-obsessed millennials can’t get enough of.
Lime & Thyme Sorbet
The ultimate taste of Summer, this sorbet is zingy and refreshing, combining sweet lime and earthy, minty tones of thyme. An unexpected combination, but one that works incredibly well. The ultimate palate cleanser.
Coconut & Pineapple Ice Cream
Perfect for those who like Pina Coladas, this ice cream is inspired by flavours that are popular in Indian desserts. The result is a fruity, fresh and creamy treat. Due to the natural ingredients, the ice cream feels indulgent yet light, which is ideal after a dinner comprising of many courses.
These new ice cream flavours are a welcome addition to Chef Sharma’s popular dessert menu which includes: blood orange, clementine, coconut and pineapple, lime and thyme and rose petal and avocado, all of which are packed with a taste of summer and the essence of the Grand Trunk Road.
Chef Sharma, Head Chef at Grand Trunk Road, said: “The food I create and serve at the Grand Trunk Road restaurant has roots in regions along the Grand Trunk Road itself, and we did not want that inspiration and commitment to the authentic flavours of India to stop with the savoury dishes we offer.“
The new ice creams sit alongside a plethora of flavoursome appetisers and mains, and can be ordered on their own or together with the restaurant’s popular cakes. Each of the desserts on the menu at Grand Trunk Road is paired with a recommended wine or spirit, to help guests choose the most complementary flavours.
