Remember when you were a kid and your summertime job was hand
cranking ice cream on visits to your grandparents’ house?
Now you can learn the same techniques of
making pure, simple ice creams for your family. Jim Cushing, owner of Charlotte & Olivia’s Sublime Ice Creams, will invite you into the kitchen of his home to share his passion for artisan ice cream.
The class includes a discussion about the differences between commercially produced ice creams and homemade ice creams, the freezing process, flavor profiles and ingredient ratios.
Following the discussion, will be a hands-on “freezing” class. Aspiring ice cream chefs will work in teams to learn how to make a batch of ice cream “dairy mix”, the base for all ice cream recipes.
Then the teams will select different signature mixes from
Charlotte & Olivia’s Sublime Ice Creams. The mixes will be used in conjunction with other ingredients that class-members have prepped to mix-up fresh batches of homemade ice cream.
When finished freezing, the ice creams will be packed by the groups into mini, single serving containers. That way each person can take home four different flavors of homemade ice cream. As a bonus, while the ice cream is freezing, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy a mini tasting of two more exotic flavors from Charlotte & Olivia’s Sublime Ice Creams seasonal features. Participants will also have the opportunity to order any pints of ice cream at a 15% discount.
