Ice Cream and Macaron Making Workshops at 15 on Orange

We were invited to experience an intimate sorbet and ice cream making workshop at my favourite Cape Town hotel - 15 on Orange. Held in one of their penthouse suites, we were shown the various ways of making ice cream and sorbet - granita, sorbet, traditional ice cream maker - and even liquid nitrogen. Queue gasps of delight from the men in the audience.

These workshops are held at the hotel by members of their all-female chef squad, and can be quite hands-on - making them great for team building, or even birthdays and kitchen teas. While we were treated to the ice cream and sorbet workshop, the hotel also offers a macaron workshop. Having experienced trying to make these tricky beasts myself, I think this should be next on my skills hit list. At only R195 a person, it is also one of the more affordable options in the city.

The workshops are generally 5 hours - so make sure you have enough time to enjoy it without rushing off.

We were shown how to make a raspberry Pimm’s granita, a granadilla sorbet, a nectarine sorbet and a (deliciously creamy) coconut sorbet - and also given a small pot of each to take home and enjoy at leisure. We enjoyed snacks and treats while watching the demo - with one of the best city views as a background - and left with a renewed passion for all things sweet and frozen. Will definitely be trying one of the sorbet recipes this summer.

We enjoyed this workshop as guests of Irvine Bartlett and 15 on Orange.
