ice bowlAn ice bowl is certainly the easiest thing to do and yet every time I bring one to the table, the reaction I get is so overwhelming that I think: “Am I the first person to ever think about making an ice bowl?” Yet, if you Google ice bowls, there are such beautiful ones to choose from!


An ice bowl can be as unique and colorful as you want it to be and do no think for one moment that it is only sweet desserts that can work in an ice bowl. A cold vichyssoise or gazpacho will look just grand in individual ice bowls decorated with herbs and maybe a chili or two. In between course, what would be more stunning than a small ice bowl or ice cup with tomato or lemon and basil granita!

Here are a few simple steps to help you make your own ice bowl!

Step 1

Find two bowls that can go in the freezer. Plastic or stainless steel will work! The one bowl must be slightly smaller than the other so that there is a gap to put the fruit of vegetables in!

Step 2

Use buff tape to keep bowls in position after you have filled it with water.

Step 3

Fill the bottom bowl with water and place top bowl in the water.

Step 4

Place a can of food in the top bowl to weigh it down!

Step 5

Start the creative process, add herbs, flowers, fruit or vegetables in the gap between the two bowls.

Step 6

Place two bowls in the freezer and freeze overnight!

Step 7

When you want to use the bowl, dip the bottom bowl in some hot water and the bowl will fall out. To remove the top bowl, pour some hot water in it. Use the bowl immediately!

My wish for you for 2013

May each day in the week be a good day
May the Lord always watch over you
And may all of your hopes turn to wishes
And may all of your wishes come true

May each day in the month be a good day
May you make friends with each one you meet
And may all of your daydreams be mem’ries
And may all of your mem’ries be sweet

The weeks turn to months and the months into years
There’ll be sadness and joy, there’ll be laughter and tears
But one thing I pray to heaven above
May each of your days be a day full of love

May each day in the year be a good day
May each dawn find you happy and gay
And may all of your days be as lovely
As the one you shared with me today

May each day of your life be a good day
And good night.
