GROM in Paris
GROM – it doesn’t matter whether I’m in Paris during wintertime or summertime, a visit to GROM is ALWAYS on my list…and beeing in Paris without endulging myself with ice creams from GROM is a big no, no.

So you might wonder why I have this big crush on GROM‘s ice creams? Well, it’s easy, they make ice cream with organic ingreients…no artificials or preservatives…only natural flavors and colors which make the ice cream taste delicious. A big plus is that they are running an eco-friendly waste management and respecting the environment by making eco friendly spoons, retail and garbage bags etc

How I discovered GROM? Well, it turned out I was a close neighbor to their shop in Paris without knowing it. Had passed it by without noticing it until my Italian friend who was working as a chef in the cuisine at Ladurée Bonaparte took me there and said, this, this is REAL ice cream. After having my first taste I could nothing but agree. Ever since I stopped by several times a week…and sometimes it happened I had ice cream from GROM several times a day too. They were open until midnight so it was easy fulfilling my ice cream cravings, no doubt. During wintertime I usually have their rich hot chocolate with a scoop of ice cream and during hot summer days I prefer their cool and fresh sorbets and sometimes when I’ve had big cravings I go for a triple size ;-)

There is something else I like about GROM and it’s their Panna Montatawhipped cream. How can  whipped cream be so special? Well, there are two different ways of obtaining whipped cream, either you whip in a machine or electrical batter where the cream incorporates air which makes the whipped cream inconsistent in it’s texture and full of air…AND there is another way, having it whipped in a machine where the air is incorporated through circular movement of a mixer that is inside a cold steel container. The last alternative gives a result where the texture of the whipped cream is thicker, and it’s much more tastier and richer than “regular” whipped cream.

Last time I was in Paris I went to GROM several times and on these photos you can see I was having pistacchio and marron glacé (candied chestnuts) with panna montata on the top. Pleasure at it’s best!

    Oh, deras glass är helt fantastisk och en av många saker som lockar med Paris. Just nu känns det som om många sociala forum svämmar över med bilder och inspiration från denna, mina drömmars stad. Oh, vad jag längtar tillbaka. Blev aldrig någon resa i vår, men till hösten är det ett måste! Förhoppningsvis är det fortfarande tid för glass då ;)
