Molecular gastronomy – a killer combo of art and science in the kitchen – is much more than a magic act. At Sub Zero Ice Cream in Gilbert, frozen confections are made in a flash with liquid nitrogen, which rapidly drops the temperature in dramatic, fog-filled fashion, resulting in a treat with zero ice crystals and a velvety smooth texture. Stop by either The Shoppes at Gilbert Commons or Paradise Valley Mall for a taste. Choose your desired size, liquid base (premium ice cream, low fat, custard, yogurt, or soy), flavors, and mix-ins, then sit back and watch as your personal recipe is turned into a delicious dessert right before your very eyes. It takes less than 15 seconds! Favorite combinations include Key Lime Pie (lime cheesecake ice cream mixed with cheesecake bits and graham cracker pieces) and Pure Addiction (sweet chocolate and marshmallow ice creams mixed with freshly baked brownies, marshmallows, and pecans).
