Five-Spiced Persimmon Ice Cream

Five-Spiced Persimmon Ice Cream

Bright orange. Looks like a pumpkin. Does not taste like pumpkin. Tastes better than a pumpkin. It is a persimmon! (At least the Fuyu one.) “I never had a persimmon before,” a friend said when I served him a scoop of the five-spiced persimmon ice […]

Pomengranate Blueberry Sorbet

Pomengranate Blueberry Sorbet

Pomegranates. Blueberries. A winter fruit of tricky and a summer fruit of warm nights. All mixed into an ice cold sweet dessert for a new year. Then zombies. And my favorite kind of meal. (Two months delayed due to travel.) Every year for my book […]

Churn Urban Creamery

Pale green. Pale pink. That’s what I seek when I look for quality ice cream. When I was a kid, I was a big fan of bubble gum ice cream. The ice cream was a pleasant blue that surrounded colorful gumballs. Sometimes the color of […]

Noble Folk Ice Cream & Pie Bar Healdsburg

I am as influenced by instagram as the next person. So it’s not a surprise that when I saw Noble Folk pop up on a food blogger’s Facebook feed, I knew had to go. But I had delayed my visit to Noble Folk for so […]

Pear Pecorino Ice Cream

When I was in Ohio to research Ice Cream Travel Guide, I asked to visit Snowville Creamery (one of the dairy sources for Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream), because I had trouble getting in touch with Jeni. To my surprise, Warren (owner of Snowville Creamery) invited […]

Thompson Grape Sorbet

Thompson Grape Sorbet

There are typically two flavors I avoid when I encounter candy. Orange and grape. Maybe because those two are the most artificial tasting. Or that their colors…aren’t as bright as yellow and blue. When we walked through my favorite farmers market, I couldn’t help but […]

“A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.” – Leo Buscagli When I began research for Ice Cream Travel Guide, ice cream lovers happily shared photos of their ice cream experiences. One particular struck me: a rose topping a cone. “I […]
