This summer Churn2, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, is setting up in a shipping container at Somerset House to serve their on-demand ice creams, made with liquid nitrogen. No heavy duty freezers, just ice creams made for you in a number of flavours while you wait.
"This summer, London welcomes Churn2, the modern shipping container turned liquid nitrogen ice cream pop-up laboratory, which will be situated in The Edmond J. Safra Court of Somerset House until 30th August.
Churn2 is the world’s first mobile liquid nitrogen ice cream shop from American foodie entrepreneur Ash Chan, who uses the cryogenic freezing process to create on-demand ice creams that are not only a visual spectacle but are also dense, smooth and creamier in texture than regular ice cream. The flash-frozen ice cream is available in small (£2.50) or regular (£3.70) and uses fresh ingredients to create a weekly changing menu of two options. Creative flavour combinations include strawberry cheesecake, lemon and basil, and chocolate coconut.
Crossing the Atlantic for the first time from its Boston home, the modified shipping container will arrive in all its striking orange detailed glory. The container will open up at the front to reveal a serving hatch lined with three nitro mixers, which emit a theatrical smoky vapour while your ice cream is made. The process eliminates the use of heavy duty freezers making the container an environmentally friendly addition to the London food truck scene.
The iconic courtyard of Somerset House will be home to the ice cream pop up throughout the summer months. Operating from 11am – 6pm on weekdays and 11am – 7pm on weekends, Churn2 will extend its opening hours to 8.30pm during Somerset House’s summer evening events programme, which include the Film4 Summer Screen, during which a special popcorn flavoured ice cream will be served."
