On a recent trip to Tokyo, I totally fell in love with matcha. Entranced by its subtle beauty, I tried it with everything when I got back. This ice cream is the best!

400g white chocolate, roughly chopped. Willie recommends his El Blanco because it isn’t too sweet and doesn’t have any vanilla.

3 eggs, yolks only

25g raw cane sugar

250g milk

250g double cream

25g matcha

  • Place the eggs and sugar in a bowl whisk until pale
  • Heat the milk and cream in a heavy bottomed pan until just about to boil
  • Put the matcha in a mug and add a teaspoon of boiling water and stir to a paste. Then very gradually add the warm milk and cream, stirring all the time until you have filled about half the mug and the matcha is fully disolved. Return this mixture to the rest of the milk and cream and whisk to combine.
  • Pour the matcha milk and cream over the eggs and sugar and keep whisking
  • Return to the pan whisk for 3 mins or until thick enough to cover the back of a spoon
  • Add the roughly chopped white chocolate and stir until fully melted.
  • Cool, churn and freeze in an ice-cream maker, following the manufacturer’s instructions. If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, tip the ice cream into a bowl, then put the bowl in the freezer until the ice cream starts to freeze around the edges. Stir well, then repeat the process twice more until the ice cream is smooth.
  • Transfer to a sealable container for longer term storage.
