If you scream for ice cream, come and belt it out with us on the next edition of The Faith Middleton Food Schmooze®. It’s a triple scoop of fun: The gang talks to Tony Yurgaitis, co-founder of Arethusa Farm & Dairy (now in New Haven!); Faith makes a boozy chocolate milkshake; and Mark Scarbrough, co-author of the new cookbook, A la Mode, joins the party with ice cream/dessert pairing ideas (and recipes!). We peek in the windows of NYC’s Museum of Ice Cream and talk hipster ice cream flavors (who wouldn’t want a lick of Green Tea-Black Sesame, Elvis’s Fat Years, and Brown Butter ice cream?). Cue that screaming—the shop is in San Fran—and we’re here. Finally, we all love that classic Good Humor ice cream sandwich, but that doesn’t stop us from dreaming up other ways to hold slabs of ice cream. Faith uses grilled corn bread, Robyn Doyon-Aitken, chocolate chip cookies, and the “sandwich” in our new favorite ice cream treat—doughnuts. This is NOT a Food Schmooze® for the lactose-intolerant. But, there will be bourbon! Faith and Chris Prosperi also cook up a shrimp salad roll that rivals the best lobster rolls in CT (and beyond).
