Cereal Milk Soft Serve

November 17, 2015

Cereal Milk Soft Serve-2I have a favour to ask.

It’s actually a favour I ask nearly everyone I know or meet at the moment, so it’s definitely your turn!

I have told you here before, but this January I am flying to NYC then onto San Francisco. 

And I NEED you to tell me what to do while I am there. PLEASE?

I want to touch down with a to do list up to my eyeballs. K? Thanks. 

So, hit me with your best NYC/ San Fran spots! Food. Things to do. Places to see. Did I say food? Go!


As homage to one of my favourite things from NYC last time I was there, I did a little soft serve experiment recently and made some Cereal Milk Soft Serve. What is Cereal Milk you ask. You know that sweet, delicious milk left after a bowl of corn flakes? Well Christina Tosi turned that into milk you can actually BUY. Then that into soft serve ice cream. Don’t judge, just make.

    Christina Tosi is a genius, isn’t she? Although I have always kind of assumed cereal milk soft serve is maybe…a little strange – but clearly I need to give it a go! Crack pie is also high on the list.
    Your trip sounds amazing, so jealous! How long are you away for? I suppose it goes without saying that you NEED to visit Momofuku Milk Bar when you are there!! And then tell us all about it! Another I would love to visit in San Francisco is Tartine Bakery.

    Oh you! This is wizardry. I am most certainly giving home made soft serve a burl.
    I went to NYC in 2009 so tonnes has changed but I absolutely adored just chilling in Bryant park. I returned there often over the three weeks just to people watch and feel like a local.
