Key Lime Whipped Cream

Key lime is one of my husband’s favorite flavors.  Its refreshing citrusy bite is especially delicious in the summer heat.  This whipped cream is so light and fluffy and works perfectly every time due to the help of a whipping siphon!  Yes, you, too, can make homemade whipped cream any time.  It lasts for up to 10 days in the refrigerator.  Because of this, make a big batch and enjoy.

Always hold the siphon perfectly upside down.  This prevents unwanted spraying.

De Froid Tip: Piping Tips

The tip on your whipping siphon determines the look of your whipped cream.  Imagine those beautiful large smooth swirls of frosting on a cupcake.  The tip of the piping bag determines the look of the product it delivers.  

My whipping siphon comes with two tips.  Both tips have serrated ends that create texture in the appearance.  If you want a smooth look for your presentation, simply place the whipping cream in a pipping bag and use a tip that has a round opening.

Piping savory foods like yolks in deviled eggs and duchess potatoes can elevate your presentation and take your cooking skills to the next level.

Welcome to Foodie de Froid!

If you love real food, take pleasure in eating, and strive for mouth-watering flavor, you have come to the right place.  Here the star of the show IS the food, presenting it in a way that makes it shine.  

Tasting Experiences

We feature many appetizers and individual-sized recipes as a purposeful way to experience and share food.  

Our mouth reacts to flavors in a transitional way.  That first taste creates an exciting experience with the food’s intense flavors, textures, and visual appeal.  Yet after the first few bites, our mouths and minds adjust, and that experience deadens.  

Thus, the tasting experience!  We served 14 consecutive courses at my last tasting party.  Each was purposely selected to bring new flavors, textures, and presentations, creating surprises and wow moments throughout the night.

The Recipes

The recipes are documented with ingredients we love.  Yet my greatest hope is to have you understand why the recipes work and eventually make them into your personal version using your favorite ingredients and presentations.
