In a non-reactive saucepan, simmer milk with basil, mint and the vanilla bean and reduce 50%. If time is available, let herb steep in milk overnight. Strain out herbs and vanilla bean and heat with sugar. Bring to scalding. Hand whisk the yolks in a stainless steel bowl. Temper the yolks by adding only a ladle of hot milk to the yolks. Mix well then add tempered yolks back to the saucepan. On medium heat, whisk constantly for 2 minutes. Strain and cool in an ice bath. When mixture is cooled, add heavy cream. Spin base according to manufacturer's instructions. Do not overspin the base. Spinning should stop when a soft-serve consistency is achieved, about 8 to10 minutes. Place in freezer before serving. 

For the Beaumes de Venise Fruit Compote: In a non-stick skillet, heat everything together and reduce by 20 percent. Fruit should be hot, but still tender-firm.

PLATING In a pasta bowl, spoon the compote and top with 3 quenelles of ice cream. Serve immediately.
