Carmela Ice Cream

Hello summer! Translation: Hello ice cream season! You might remember this. Yes, Coolhaus is very much on my radar right now. Have you tried it yet?

But what’s really inspiring me these days in the creamy/cool dessert realm is the small batch company Carmela. I’ve been intrigued every since I saw their charming stall at the farmer’s market in 2007. Have you seen them around? Yeah, they’re super cute. And they happen to make some of the best ice cream in town. I decided to interview flavor developer Jessica Mortarotti on the Huffington Post this week and she was kind enough to share a recipe for Lemon Basil Sorbet. Click HERE to check out our conversation.
