As a kid, working for your ice-cream meant chasing down the ice-cream truck. For the owners of The Chin Chin Laboratorists in Camden, it means threat of frostbite avoided only by leather gloves and safety goggles. This north London ice-cream parlour and confectionery shop uses liquid nitrogen to make their ice cream, that’s a 180-litre tank of nitrogen sprays the chemical into a jug, which is then mixed with egg custard ice-cream. The nitrogen gas spills over the counter seeming more like a science experiment than an ice-cream shop. Owners Ahrash Akbari-Kalhur and wife Nyisha Weber broke free from their city and marketing jobs two years to research this nitro-ice, and the shop is the first of its kind in all of Europe. The result? An affordable £4 for smooth, creamy ice-cream – definitely worth all (their) hard work. / Jessica Ainlay
