Need a moment to cool off in this world of brutes? For the last four generations, Beatrix has been making both the pressure and the temperature drop for people in Vals-les-Bains. Run by Pierre and Laure Cerdini, their ice cream machines and local ingredients get the job done right! The flavor combos that deserve an award? The icy Lemon Pie that combines cream-flavored ice cream, zesty lemon sorbet, lemon ganache and whipped cream, or the Cévenole, with its irresistible chestnut ice cream, vanilla and candied chestnuts. Worth mentioning: Guillaume Cerdini, the third member of this family, sells his chocolate sweets at the shop next door. // Noël Flantier 

THE HIDDEN GEM: A mischievous pairing of caramel ice cream, hazelnut ice cream, caramelized pecans, meringue and whipped cream (€8.70) – the ultimate comfort food!
