Hi! I’m Lindsay. I founded The Ice Chef after a soul-searching trip to Thailand. This is my story.
Becoming a single mum brought a lot of new learning and with a baby in my arms, it was a fearful place to be.
The whole reason I was in Thailand travelling with my baby was to get space from the UK to gain direction in my new chapter as a mum.
Whilst in Phuket, I stood and watched a man at a stand making banana ice cream rolls. He saw me watching him and called me over. He said, “You have sad eyes yet you are the richest woman in Thailand with such a beautiful daughter”. He gave me an ice cream for free and said, “no money, just friends, be happy”.
So, I returned to him every day, eating ice cream and playing on the machine, learning to create ice cream rolls, and, in the process, rediscovering my happiness.
His kindness changed my thinking.
I found clarity and reconnected. I knew the kindness I received via ice cream rolls was what I wanted to bring back to the UK. So I did…
Hence the slogan Life is Sweet…
