Or pie ala mode, as I believe it may be known in abroad.

I trust no one is going to argue with me concerning the sheer quality of this dish. My gf suggested earlier that her preference was for apple crumble. Which is fine. I'm all for personal preference as long as you don't try and establish it as human fact. Besides, crumble too is a fine dish, but you're canoeing roughly into custard waters if you have a crumble. Again, that's just my personal preference, not a human fact.

But the problem comes with cutlery selection. Fork or spoon? Fork for the pie, of course, but eating ice cream with a fork? Not my thing. Which necessitates the use of a spoon. But you can't eat pie with a spoon very well at all. And I'll be buggered if I'm using TWO different bits of cutlery.

It's this bloody conundrum that stops me from having apple pie and ice cream a lot more regularly than I do.

I do believe Apple Pie with a nice piece of aged Cheddar is preferable to ice cream. Provided of course the pie's contents are suitably moist.

Christ. I wasn't expecting this thread to get so rowdy so quickly.

I remember the first time I was confronted with a fork with which I was supposed to eat my pudding. It was pretty traumatic.

You put cheese on something, like proper cheese not cheese cake cheese, it ceases to be a pudding and becomes a lunch.

Apple pie for lunch, though, I could be swayed. I shall be leaving the cheese on the side of my plate however.

Apple Crisp (topping made with oats) is better than both crumble and pie.

I assume we're all working on the basis that this is vanilla ice cream?

TonTon has concisely and persuasively got to the heart of the cutlery 'debate'.

Yes vanilla.

I know someone, though I forget who, who buys neapolitan ice cream, but eats the strawberry first, then the vanilla, then the chocolate. What a loon.

How is a cobbler different from a crisp or a crumble? Because I really like apple cobbler.

There was a time when a slice of cheese routinely appeared on your plate of apple pie in pretty much every diner in Western Canada. I thought it was odd and used to eat it when I'd finished the pie until I realised it was one of those God-given harmonious taste sensations that simply could not be denied. Call it lunch if you like but don't deny yourself the experience.

I had once a warm pear tarte tatin with a fresh goat cheese ice-cream in a posh restaurant in Manchester. It was rather superb I have to say.

I also add fruit cake and crumbly cheshire cheese served in a pub in Chester (Albion - craking place) which went together very well.

Cobbler isn't crispy or crumbly. Except, of course for the sugar baked onto the surface.

Rhubarb? Rhubarb crumble - a delight (but that deffo calls for custard).

Now, boiled Rhubarb with pastry fingers .. no.
