Everyone likes a bowl of ice cream. Especially on a scorching hot summer day. A spoonful of sweet, creamy ice cream is at once refreshing and comforting. It’s a food that can make you feel like a kid again.
If you have a knock your socks off recipe for homemade ice cream, you might want to think about entering the first ever South End Churn Off to take place at Atherton Market August 4, 2012. The competition is free and open to anyone, but entries must be received by email by Wednesday August 1. Recipe must be included on entry form.
