Nice and creamy

Mango yoghurt sorbet
Delicious with an exotic flair

Tip:All sorbets can of course also be frozen in an ice cream machine.
Johann Lafer, 54, was already in the kitchen with Mama as a child and helped with cake baking. Instead of a railway, he wished for a mixing bowl with whisk. Which he also got from his aunt. Sweetness is still his passion. "I particularly enjoyed ice cream as a child. That's why I let my imagination run free with my icy desserts. "
