A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

imag0738Meredith and I headed over to the Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Summer Book Tour event at Miele Showroom in Wellesley, MA back in June. Jeni Britton Bauer has been making ice cream for over 2 decades. Based out of Columbus, OH, Britton Bauer makes ice cream with grass-grazed milk, local produce, American bean-to-bar chocolate and select ingredients from around the world, including exquisite Fair-Trade-Certified African vanilla and Dutch cocoa. Her second cookbook, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts, came out in May – 2 years after her wildly popular, New York Times Best Selling first cookbook, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts made its debut.

imag0739Jeni is just so lovely. She talked about her career while she sauteed peaches and berries in butter and white wine. The dessert was served with manchego ice cream. Certainly a savory ice cream, it took a few bites to get accustomed to the flavor, but it was really quite nice (not sure I would sit on the couch and eat a whole pint of it, like I would say, with vanilla, but it paired really well with the dessert).

imag0741Jeni’s comes in delicious flavors like goat cheese with red cherries, queen city cayenne, roasted strawberry buttermilk, cherries kickapoo, pistachio &  honey, saison with sunflower seeds and golden flax, wiskey and pecans, wildberry lavender and yazoo sue with rosemary bar nuts.
