Churned on: Ice cream kit looks to tradition

18.06.2012 Food Futures : Icecream Parlour : Ploenpit Nittaramorn

London – Thai design student Ploenpit Nittaramorn has created an ice cream-making kit that swaps modern machinery for traditional wooden tools and a frozen marble board for the Central Saint Martins College MA graduation show.

Icecream Parlour provides the tools, including a lemon squeezer, paddles and a pestle and mortar, for people to prepare and combine ingredients before pouring the ice cream mixture onto a frozen marble board and churning it by hand. The cold surface freezes the mixture within minutes.

Nittaramorn demonstrated flavours including Mojito Sorbet and Singha Beer during the show.

This is a great example of design that harks back to traditional techniques as a means of harnessing consumer demand for greater knowledge of food provenance. For more on consumer shifts in the food sector, read our Food Futures report.
