A Spanish physicist who decided to become a professional cook has created ice cream that changes colour from blue to pink as it slowly melts.
Manuel Linares, 37, studied both physics and engineering at university and worked as a lecturer before deciding that he would like to become a chef because of a passion for cooking.
After studying at the Hotel Business School Hoffman in Barcelona to learn about cooking, he took a course in ice cream making which included encouraging students to make a new flavour of ice cream.
He said: "When he asked me what type I was going to make, I said one that changes colour. Everyone laughed, but as a physicist I know that there are various possibilities that might work and I was delighted when I managed to crack it and create an ice cream the changes colour."
The ice cream he created, that he said tastes like tutti-frutti, and is so popular that business at his ice cream parlour in the town of Calella de Mar, in the east Spanish province of Barcelona, is booming.
He is also selling the ice cream, called "Xamaleon", that means "chameleon" in Catalonian, to two other ice cream parlours and is hoping that he will be able to find other buyers to sell the ice cream abroad.
He said: "I am a huge fan of the British ice cream genius Charlie Francis, the creator of a fluorescent ice and founder of the company "Lick Me Delicious" and I wanted to create an ice cream that changed colour to try and do something new as well.
"It was important to me to make sure I only used natural ingredients, so it took a bit longer. And as to the trick, I am not giving out too much detail because the patents are still going through."
