Bak Kwa Ice Cream

Happy Chinese New Year to all!

To get into the festive spirit, we decided to recreate a local Chinese New Year staple, Bak Kwa, into an ice cream form. Bak kwa ice cream is not a novelty in Singapore. However if you are you are expecting a vanilla ice cream with little bits bak kwa like you will see at some local parlours, it is not like that at all. Our interpretation is different.

Inspired by the Proscuitto ice cream, we took to roasting the salt and black peppered marinated Bak Kwa pieces to further intensify the flavor before soaking it in milk for three days to extract out the porcine flavor. The bak kwa infused milk is then use to make into ice cream. The resultant has a smoky, caramelized porky taste to it, which is exactly Bak Kwa in ice cream form!
