  • This week on Basics, things take a turn for the sweeter because I'm making ice cream. We're going to try a few different techniques that vary in difficulty, but they all have one thing in common: you don't need a standalone appliance.

    Babish, I’ve been watching your for a while. Getting to know you. You seem like a really cool guy. We have very similar senses of humor. We both don’t like ricotta in our lasagna. But this video, and all the chocolatey goodness you’ve created, proves my theory that I think you’re my soul mate.

    3:48 Salt makes ice colder than ice would get without salt.

    We did this thing in school that was so stupid, we put some salt on our forearm and pressed an ice cube onto it.
    Don't try it, it will burn your skin and leave scars..

    I see a lot of people from english speaking countries imply that there is some discernible difference between ice cream and gielato. Gielato is just the translation and I have no idea where people get the idea that they are, in some way, different.
