Once September hits, the formal ritual of transforming the basis of our personalities from iced latte to pumpkin spiced begins.
So naturally, during the transitional period, anything pumpkin related catches our eye. It all contributes to our carefully curated Autumn aesthetic.
Take this soft serve ice cream from new food truck on the block Los Chicanos Tacos for example:
Sweetcorn and pumpkin might not usually be the type ingredients you'd associate with ice cream, but this food truck deserves your trust. Chef and owner Scott Helder's Mexican cuisine expertise comes straight from the source after years of working alongside Mexican chefs in kitchens across the world and travelling extensively through Mexico, immersing himself in cooking techniques handed down through generations.
Basically, he knows his stuff and didn't pull this ice cream recipe out of the sky. Following a quick google search I've discovered that sweetcorn is apparently the ideal base for ice cream and that even Martha Stewart backs pumpkin seed brittle, so I'm thinking we're onto a winner here. Also, it's the ideal treat if your tastebuds are feeling autumnal but it's still that little bit too warm to whip out the hot chocolates and itchy wooly jumpers (you might not believe us, but there is such a thing as "too warm" in Ireland sometimes. Sure, it only happens about once every 8 years, but it exists).
