Cult Creamery in Paradise Camden Market vs The Maldives at PER AQUUM Niyama: Chin Chin Labs, the pioneers of made-to-order artisanal liquid nitrogen ice cream, is conjuring up culinary creations and haute cuisine ice cream at PER AQUUM Niyama from 16 – 21 March. Part of PER AQUUM’s PULSE line-up for 2016, adults and mini VIPs alike will be put under the spell of the ice cream magicians, straight out of London’s Camden Market, as they unveil exotic limited-time flavours at the pop-up parlour on the resort’s new island, ‘Play’.
With all ice creams made fresh to order, the exclusive flavours will feature ingredients from the resort Chef’s own herb garden ranging from Roasted Sweet Coconut Curry, Mango & Saffron, Banana Blossom & Jasmine to dairy free options such as Passionfruit & Raw Cacao Nib. Guests can also get involved at the hands-on Nitro Workshops at BLU’s Cooking School on 17, 19 and 21 March.
Hailed as the ‘Best ice cream parlour in England’ by The Times and the ‘Future of Ice Cream’ by The Observer in the UK, Chin Chin Labs has achieved a cult status amongst chefs and ice cream aficionados – not to mention children - the world over. Shunning traditional techniques and convention, Chin Chin Labs has been creating artisanal ice creams to order, frozen with liquid nitrogen and billowing with clouds of ‘ice’ since 2010. Having pioneered liquid nitrogen ice-cream as a retail concept, Chin Chin Labs uses liquid nitrogen at -1960C to freeze their handmade bases, which then boils away in a vapour cloud creating fresh ice cream.
The family fun does not stop with ice cream at PER AQUUM Niyama, known as Nature’s Playground, where children can ditch their parents and join one of the tribes at Explorers, the only children’s club in the Maldives to accept children as young as 12 months. The resort has established itself as one of the Maldives’ leading destinations for gastronomic experiences – from the treehouse restaurant, Nest, to underwater dining at Subsix, or fine dining at Edge, 500m offshore, there is no chance guests will spoil their appetites despite the tempting lure of Chin Chin Labs’ pop-up parlour.
Keeping it in the family, activities also include Turtle Quests, Dolphin Cruises, Coral Adoption, scuba courses for beginners, fun tubing and sailing. As they say, families that spa together, stay together. PER AQUUM Niyama’s LIME Spa family packages include Family SPArty, Mother & Princess, Daddy & Prince, the Family Massage Workshop and Family Yoga – the perfect antidote after indulging in Chin Chin Labs’ sweet treats.
