And now…experiencing ice cream elsewhere

9 Jun

Now that 31 flavors have been created, this blog will serve to follow iterations upon previous flavors and capture a few moments of the research of the Ice Cream Travel Guide.

I am on my 5th week traveling through New York, Philadelphia, Delaware, Italy, and Turkey to gather research for the final section of the Ice Cream Travel Guide.

Yesterday, someone asked in her Italian-accented English, “Why ice cream?”

I smiled and mustered the little bit of Italian I knew, “Perché no?”

Why not?

Kickstarter for Ice Cream Travel Guide launched!

26 Jan

Support the kickstarter for the primary project, the Ice Cream Travel Guide!

Making the ice cream flavors started as a fun project, but as I proceeded, it helped me understand the intricacies of ice cream. The challenges in bringing out flavors, the patience required, the sourcing of ingredients (and its cost). When I started the Ice Cream Travel Guide project, my ice cream making helped me undertand and sympathize with ice cream makers. Like some of them, I come up with zany flavors offhand. Like many of them, I prefer using local, seasonal ingredients (except when they’re on sale; when ingredients are on sale, you cannot stop me). I can chat all day about the power of ice cream (as I did in the Philippines) understanding the difficulties in machinery, the nuances of ice cream. Then it makes me curious about how the business is run.

It makes my interviews with ice cream makers even better.
