Vegan Sweet Potato Chocolate Ice Cream
Maybe not one for traditionalists but certainly aimed at the vegan friends among us.

This recipe is interesting as it calls for dates and cashews which makes it a bit trickier than your usual table-topper but could be perfect for those looking for a slightly more unusual trea.

I saw this yesterday and it's thoroughly delightful and suitably filled with wonder. The dream mixing sequence alone is worth the price of the ticket.

Vintage Spielberg, if not slightly bloated.

American loving life in London, UK.
Introduction
Passions include reading, going to the theatre, watching and playing sport (mostly football), going to the cinema (when I have time), hitting the gym, cooking, and roaming across the island and the world.

All my posts are public which means you'll get a mix of philosophy, politics, art, industry updates, media, sport and design. I tend to circle those who have a full profile and repeatedly interact with me.

I also manage the blog for the Loveliest Book Group, check it out.

Enjoy!

Decent selection but the layout of the shop is difficult to navigate and it's routinely extremely busy, making for a generally less-than-fun experience.
