Ice Cream? Ice Cream!


Photo of ice cream flavors by Suedehead.In much of San Mateo County spring has returned, summer is just around the corner, and one's thoughts start turning toward ice cream.

For a little background, let's start with Ice Cream: The Delicious History. If this leaves you inspired to make your own, try Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream: Sweet Seasonal Recipes for Ice Creams, Sorbets, and Toppings Made with Local Ingredients. Thanks to the Travel Channel you can journey to Ice Cream Paradise as part of their Food Paradise DVD collection.

The San Francisco Bay Area has its own unique ice cream tradition. The Its-It ice cream sandwich has been around since 1928. Finally, the question often arises "Should I share my ice cream?" Mo Willems has the answer.

What a delicious blog post. I'm hungry! Our libraries will soon have a new book to drool over, The Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream Book. If you haven't made it to San Francisco's Mission District to try their unique flavors, it's worth a visit. I'm looking forward to reading the recipe for "Secret Breakfast" (bourbon ice cream with candied cornflakes).
