ice cream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream (with olive oil)
just to prove to you quite how much i might be rammed up my own british arse, i should divulge that my contribution to last saturday's italian food was garnered NOT from the finest italian cookbook one could find, but, of course, from everyone's favorite pasty-faced english boy: Jamie Oliver. AND. not only did i use jamie's expertize to guide my way into italian cuisine. i elected to "make" what might well be the most lazy-assed, rank-sounding dessert on the planet. here it is.
1-2 globs of good quality vanilla icecream (breyers worked for me)
small spinkle of sea salt.
lightly drizzle with the greenest olive oil you can find (i used trader joe's unfiltered).
everyone was game, and everyone was scared. and let me tell you, while it might not have been the delectable butternut squash ravioli with sage butter (sigh...) made by my lovely pal, it was amazingly good. i mean, amaaaazingly good.
seriously, i highly recommend it. and according to jamie, it's all the rage in italy. so there you go.
