Vanilla bean ice cream is on the first one of my favorite ice cream list. Original, original, original. Oy… Every time I eat vanilla bean ice cream I would scream loud that why it is so nice to eat! Full milk fragrance with smooth taste, that’s what vanilla bean ice cream brings to me!

This time I would make vanilla bean ice cream with my ice cream maker, and I take reference of a french pastry master’s recipe, so cool. He is a person I respect a lot, he has put all his wisdom into the dessert making, I wonder how far he could go since I’ve known him well, er…only from his recipe books! Expecting my screaming vanilla bean ice cream!
