Through her 13 years as a pastry chef, Jen has gained a lot of experience in creating memorable handmade ice cream. We started Weckerly's less than two years ago, and since then we have learned a lot of techniques and little tricks that allow us to best showcase fresh and local ingredients. Next Thursday's class will be our first opportunity to share some of this knowledge with you -- and of course, sample lots of tasty treats in the process.
In addition to preparing a custard base, you will also learn how to prepare fresh fruit for ice cream. Jen will cover a few approaches for concentrating great flavors whileremoving some of the fruit's moisture that can make the finished product icy.
We will conclude with an ice cream sampling and q & a. Each participant also comes away with a coupon for a free pint of one of our delicious sorbets or ice creams. These can be redeemed from us at our farmers' markets, the Green Line Café, or of course the Fair Food Farmstand. We hope you can join us!
