In Ecuador, there's a very special kind of ice cream. It's made by hand, by putting fresh cream inside a copper container sitting on blocks of ice.

The result is extremely good... a mix between regular ice cream and sorbet. This batch was vanilla, but it can be any flavour too. more...

The name comes from the shape of this pastry... which looks like the tail of a beaver... a national emblem of Canada. It's a whole-wheat pastry, stretched and flat-cooked in canola oil. After a short rest period to let oil get out, it's spread with butter and toppings. more...
