If you don't have an ice cream maker, you can still join and use your favorite purchased ice cream! You'll still learn a lot about custards of all sorts (creme brulee, pudding, etc.) 1) Homemade Ice Cream (we'll be preparing an infused variety which could be flavored with Mint, Coffee, Vanilla Bean, Ginger, Lemon Zest or similar). If you want advice on how to make a fruit or other add-in ice creams, please ask in advance-- we can talk you through the process 2) Soft Wafers -- we'll be preparing a tender, not-too-sweet chocolate wafer When pairing cookies with ice cream, the texture is important to insure a cookie that doesn't snap or break when bitten into 3) Demoing how to Temper Chocolate to yield a snappy chocolate shell to encase the sandwiches If you don't have an ice cream maker, you can still make the sandwiches with your favorite prepared ice cream and we can further discuss how to dip the ice cream sandwiches in tempered chocolate, nibs or nuts.
