Recipe For Gorgonzola Ice Cream

Shortly before I moved to Gordons Bay I heard a pop when I closed the boot of my car. Thinking it was the tendon in my neck snapping, I thought nothing of it. But, 6 months after my move I could barely lift my right arm to brush my teeth. I went to see an orthopaedic surgeon and he diagnosed my problem as being what is commonly called snapping scapula syndrome. He gave me a voltaren injection and referred me to another surgeon who specialised in this problem. He felt my shoulder, confirmed the diagnosis and sent me for physiotherapy. As he did not know of any local therapists, I made the round trip of 113 kilometres twice a week for 4 months. The massage and anti-inflammatories resulted in the Doctor stating my problem was cured and off I went for my December leave. By January the pain was back and this time I went to a local physiotherapist who was treating a friend of mine for rotator cuff problems. She did the same treatment around my scapula but with it not improving I decided to see a chiropractor. He took an x-ray and told me my rib had sublocated. He could put the rib back, but after 2 years of it being out of place – since I heard it pop – the tendon had lengthened to keep it out. Dr. Tasker to me is the best diagnostician and so when my tricep that I injured in December was not responding to acupuncture and massage I went back to see him. Lo and behold, my left rib was out of place! He popped it back in, and within days, the pain I had endured was gone. What won’t be out of place is this amazing Gorgonzola ice cream. Served as an alternative to a cheese platter, accompanied by a fig tarte tatin, this made for an interesting after dinner course.

  2. Great recipe Tandy. I bought some very nice Italian Gorgonzola on my recent trip to the Barossa. As I’m the only blue cheese eater for miles around, I will bookmark this so when my friend (also a lone blue cheese eater) comes over, we can enjoy this together.

  18. Yikes! Sorry to hear about the troubles you have been having. I once had Frozen Shoulder Syndrome and it was awful. I have basically no problems now (it took nearly a year to go away) and it has made me really appreciate my health!

    Your Gorgonzola Ice Cream is quite fancy and sophisticated!
