Torch ginger flower ice cream

During my vacation in Bali I came across torch ginger flower in my food a couple of times. At one restaurant the waiter explained that this flower does not actually stem from what we know as ginger root. It is a big red flower, bigger than a human hand, that grows in South East Asia and is often used in savory dishes.

In a restaurant in Ubud called Spice, which is owned by the same chef as the highly established Mozaic, it came in a sweet form instead of savory. It was used to flavor some ice-cream that was served with a rather lovely crème brulee. The taste of the ice-cream. However, was a bit generic. It was a good ice-cream, but I would never have guess the magic ingredient. I think this one just needs a little more work.
