How lovely to see you.

Please help yourself to a glass of champagne, come in and mingle? You are a welcome guest, thank you for dropping by.

Champagne and strawberry sorbet

This is a debut, a foray, a whimsy, a vent for edible artiness.  As a creative, it’s a joy to be unrestrained!

Though I’d rather give the cat a leg wax than write another about me page!

There is, however, a base plan for a free, on-line quarterly magazine, this blog is the litmus test.

Please share your thoughts as you are my target demographic:-
Interested and interesting carers and sharers, for which I thank you.


An About page was originally destined to appear with an explanation of a tenuous link to the book shown, that was if the blog ever garnered 100 followers (blush).   Cecelia Aherns book One Hundred Names,  added alchemy to my thoughts. Your presence is appreciated and proves the essence of her writing to be true.

thank you cupcake

Thank you for your time and for being so kind.

Love from Panz  X

Your questions answered:

How long have you been cooking?

Oh 45 years – ish. There was the odd dogs dinner early on but most things turn out ok.

Nothing exciting, did ok at the School of Survival.  A Master’s degree in Art and Design, which is deplorably un-exercised, as am I.

Why blog?

The blog will be left in perpetuity for my family. Chaucer wrote: The devil makes work for idle hands (also minds in my case).

Whats your style?

Many and varied. Dear me, some of you can be quite scary. Common sense cooking with a few twists and turns, plenty of keen hyperbolic language, rather than the minutiae, a bit of fun, a lot of ice cream.

I love the combination of old and new.

When did you decide to write a blog?

white wine in glass

The glass of wine shown here and on the front page was the defining dining moment and helped explain, to others, my incessant desire to cook, create, phaph and photograph food.

Wit v wisdom?

My prototype for a black and white ice cream machine, It’s a work in progress.

Hope you see a little of both?

Note: My first post was on April foods day.

Who takes your photographs?

I do, exclusively.

Is Pansy your real name?

Ah intrigue? No. My late parents et al called me Panz or Pansy it’s just a nick name. It comes from Pansy Potter the Strong Mans Daughter. A Beano Cartoon, from 1938.   http://www.beano.com/retro-beano/pansy-potter?decade=1960.

  1. I so appreciate your desire to honor giving credit when due – I like to do the same on my blog. Would you consider creating an section in your blog for desserts low in sugar?

  2. Hi! Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and liking an article. And all the photos of ice cream are making me wanna grab a cone or two..or three…or maybe five. HAHA!

  3. Interesting about – I struggled with writing mine too! Thank you for your visit to my blog today. I think I like what I see on yours enough to follow – ice cream is always good 🙂 Have an awesome Christmas and 2016.

  4. Hi ! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and liking my post on Strawberry Pie. Like you, I too have a degree in Design, which sadly hasn’t been put to much use. Love how your photographs are so colourful! 🙂

  5. Hello Panz , thank you for dropping by my blog and liked my post! Oh my, your blog is amazing! whats not to love looking at those beautiful pictures! I want to lick my laptop now! LOL!

  6. Dear, ice cream magazine owner.

    I love what you do with ice cream.
    Had a question for you.
    I make a website for the people that suffer of chronic pain everyday.
    We love to cook and make things ourselfs. That is a hard time everytime. That’s why i created the site. To place recipies that can be done with the least amount of pain.
    Would you be interested to let me look and share some of your recipes that we can do?
    That i post what i can use and give you the credits name, website link.
    Would love to hear from you.

  7. Need some sort of ‘spanish’ dessert option my dear. Going to host a Frida Kahlo themed (pre) Cinco De Mayo party. Besides the obvious sangria, can you suggest something sinfully simple & delicious that I should try? Small enough for maybe mini passings? Thank you, Laura

  8. Have you ever considered including a printable recipe card with your beautiful ice cream prose? This way, we can add the details of these lovingly designed masterpieces to our own recipe binders. Thanks for the amazing frozen feast for the eyes.

  9. Dearest, I hereby denounce your sneaky visit to my site thus enticing me to undertake a return visit. Naturally, I got completely lost amongst your beautiful photos while a tremendous hankering for frozen deliciousness washed over me like lava from an erupting volcano. Should you ever return, please bring some munchies. Yours, Photolera Claudinha
