Is summer too hot? Let’s refresh it with an ice cream … homemade!

Raise your hand if you have not wanted a nice ice cream in the middle of a monstrously hot night. We love summer, but it would certainly be more bearable if between a peak of heat and the next we could delight in something fresh always within reach of the fridge.
And maybe, not only fresh, but also delicious.

Preparing an ice cream at home is very simple and fast. You just have to consider a long stay of the mixture in the freezer for it to harden before consumption. I leave you my favorite recipe, reminding you to always experiment by adding essences, fruits, and everything that entices you and gives you pleasure to the palate.

So let’s get started and let’s prepare an excellent ice cream together, to keep in the freezer for the hot nights of this long summer.

  • First, recover a plum cake mold and two containers for the preparation of the compounds. The basic ingredients are: 500 g of fresh whipping cream; 400 grams of condensed milk; vanilla extract or vanilla bean; chocolate chips to taste.
    The final surprise that I will not reveal to you now requires rather large round cookies, follow me to the end and you will find out how to use them;)
  • The procedure is very simple. I suggest you to start the preparation the night before, to allow the mixture to “stay overnight” in the freezer. Must stay there at least 8 hours.
  • Let’s start by mixing the condensed milk and vanilla in a bowl (2 tablespoons if liquid, or a berry). In another container, whip the cream (it must be very cold) firmly.
  • We combine the concentrated milk mixture with the whipped cream, mixing from top to bottom with slow movements. To taste we add the chocolate chips or other of your choice.
  • We finish by slowly pouring the mixture into the plum cake mold, which will go into the freezer to rest for at least 8 hours.
  • But the best part is now … Take the biscuits and put a scoop of ice cream on a biscuit, cover with another biscuit and form a sandwich. I love to decorate one side of the biscuit with other chocolate chips or chopped hazelnuts.

These delicious ice cream sandwiches last for 3/4 weeks, but I’m sure they won’t last that long!
Happy summer everyone!

NEVER STOP – Looking at the future with confidence

During COVID-19, we as Fujifilm had to reinvent ourselves and change the way we work. Thanks to team spirit, problem-solving and a certain dose of irony, all of our Fujifilm staff members across EMEA have managed to reinvent ‘business as usual’ . We want to show our gratitude to all employees for adapting so quickly and effectively to the ‘new normal’.
Together with our employees and full of positivity, we are now looking to the future with confidence.

Feel invited to #neverstop eating healthy and fresh in your #fujicomfortzone

The Fujifilm family has reached week 3 of, where possible, working in the #homeoffice in the #fujicomfortzone.

Our colleagues sharing their #fujicomfortzone moments.

The corona pandemic has massively impacted people’s lifestyle, health and the global  economy. But it also seems to help focus on the parts of our lives that are most valuable to all of us. Across Europe, our Fujifilm workforce has jointly communicated online under the hashtag #fujicomfortzone. Our colleagues posted and expressed positive thoughts, motivation and hope for one another.

These communal posts lead to the positive fact that all over the Fujifilm family, colleagues let us know what is most valuable and precious to them. We have met partners and children, found out about furry animal house mates that explore workspaces and got a glimpse into the way colleagues live, a glance into the save place we call home – that has become a #fujicomfortzone over the recent weeks. 

Our colleagues also let us know what they consider most important when working for Fujifilm Europe while not being able to enter their office as usual. Being in contact with colleagues, via telephone or video calls – not only to get the important and valuable information that we all need to do a good job, but also to be in contact, to share excitement, fear, news and … tips and tricks that help to stay sane during quarantine. 

Over these days and weeks, we might all have learned a lot about staying mentally sane while being pretty much locked into our homes during spring. We learned about keeping the daily routine – getting up and getting dressed, having a coffee, reading the newspapers and then starting the “day at work”, we have learned about indoor sports and self motivation – just to mention a few handy tips that our friends, family and the media were able to provide us.

Fujifilm Europe’s workforce is very diverse and multicultural, colleagues bring together different languages, sports, music and art and most of all – in times of grocery shops missing toilet paper, bread, pasta and tomato juice – they bring in different cuisines. 

Well, it obviously makes a lot of sense to care about good and healthy food. Fujifilm Europe is making every effort to provide the best possible service for customers and partners during these times of crisis. Considering that “no engine runs without fuel” we should not forget to take care of ourselves to stay healthy, strong and active to work in our #fujicomfortzone. Therefore, we have prepared a beautiful but simple dish sent in by one of our colleagues that helps you – in times of chronic bread shortages, to use all of it, even the rest, the hard and old bits – as well as possible and at the same time welcome yummy beautiful fruit, colour and spring. 

So, everybody – Fujifilm family or not: Feel invited to #neverstop eating healthy and fresh in your #fujicomfortzone!
