Reviews of interest

GQ (2013) “Ni purée de fruits congelée, ni colorant, ni conservateur, Martine Lambert ne travaille qu’avec des produits frais et de saison. L’autre talent réside dans les associations étonnantes et savoureuses : la Martinique à la vanille, orange confite et rhum, la Nuit de Chine au cacao et poivre du Sichuan ou encore l’Eté indien à la figue et clémentines.”

Time Out (2012) “You’ll be hard-pushed to find thicker, creamier ice cream than at Martine Lambert’s parlour on Rue Cler, where Normandy lait cru (unpasteurised milk) and crème fraîche are used in most of her recipes.”

Serious Eats (2012) “The ice cream is made with milk from cows in Normandy and the flavors are honest, and constantly changing. Where to begin? Well for starters, do not miss this Clafoutis aux Myrtilles (pictured). Each spoonful literally pops with the sweetest of summer berries tucked within the smooth, vanilla ice cream base. All at once decadent and wholesome. Take advantage of the summer months—only then can you purchase ice cream by the scoop (it’s sold by the container year round).”

Le Figaro (2010) “…le choix de glaces sans colorants ni conservateurs reste honorable…prix un poil réfrigérants.”
