Norilsk residents have already tried ice cream with venison, northern berries and coal-black Miners’ one.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Ice-cream is not a banal confectionery sweetness: it can include real northern ingredients: local berries and even meat.

This year, at city holidays, Norilsk residents could try something like this – with venison, tundra berries and coal-black Miners’ ice-cream.

Interest in non-classical tastes has already been shown by local retail chains, cafes, there is also a request from other cities of the country and from abroad.

Until the novelty was launched on a wide sale, says Nina Fedotova, the idea author and the brand founder, the first batches were sold at city events, and were also presented at the Tundra gastrofest in Naryan-Mar, where they were highly appreciated.

“I have always liked unusual flavor combinations, and when I went to Japan, I tried fish ice-cream. I liked it! I thought: why not make ice-cream with the tastes and products that our land, the North, is famous for? For example, venison, which is loved and appreciated here for its high taste and health benefits”, says Nina.

Five types of treats are ready today: three types of berry cups – with cloudberries, blueberries and lingonberries and two popsicles on a stick – with charcoal and salted caramel – Miners’, as well as a version in white chocolate with salt, black pepper and thin shavings of dried reindeer meat.

All ingredients are quality tested as they come from serious food producers, both local and mainland. It was important to find a combination of flavors that people would like. And, judging by the success of ice-cream sold during the holidays, the goal has been achieved.

Earlier we told that Norilsk cooking began in the kitchens of wintering geologists – the first recipes were borrowed from the indigenous peoples of Taimyr. The Culinary Argish, which recently took place in Norilsk and Dudinka, offered the townspeople several dozen dishes from Taimyr products, and scientists developed special foods for the Arctic with wild plants and deer meat.
