“I doubt whether the world holds for any one a more soul-stirring surprise than the first adventure with ice-cream.” ~ Heywood Broun
I was asked to write a post about making ice cream for Cook Kosher , a fantastic site dedicated to kosher cooking. Founded by brother and sister team, Leah Schapira and Zalman Roth, the duo shares terrific recipes, food news, tips and tricks. Below is an excerpt from my piece on ice cream making 101.

I still remember my first time like it was yesterday. It was a warm April day. The sun was shining. I got home from work early, giddy with excitement and eager anticipation. I have to admit though, I was nervous. What if The Husband found me? I was afraid of getting in trouble, of divulging my deepest secret. After all, I snuck this little toy into my apartment, and if he found me, oooh if he found me, what would I ever do?
And then it hit me. Who cares if someone finds out! I am so in love that I feel like shouting from the rooftop of my NYC apartment for the entire world to hear!
And that’s what I did.
Listen up everyone. I MADE ICE CREAM FOR THE FIRST TIME!
There, I said it. I feel so much better now!
That was 11 months ago, and the rest is history.
I set out to write 365scoops with the intention of making a few flavors of ice cream a week, blogging about the experience, and sharing with you, my loyal readers, the recipes and how-to’s so that you could create the very same flavors at home. Along the way, I tasted every type of ice cream and gelato I could find, for…errrr…inspiration…and market research! Now I’ve become a self-proclaimed ice-cream-o-holic. I cannot live without ice cream. In fact, 365scoops has grown so much, that we cater parties, sell ice cream, and even do tastings and demonstrations (shameless plug: visit 365scoops.com to find out how to score a quart of ice cream for your freezer!)
