Carnival Barker’s latest graphic tee reads, “Give me ice cream or give me death.” It’s a motto owner Aaron Barker churns by, as it took him only a little over a year to propel his frozen dairy dynasty from a small Kickstarter to award winning retail storefront. Barker truly started from the bottom with no funding and is now set to open his second retail location in early 2015. He uses zero high fructose corn syrup, zero artificial flavors, zero preservatives, and a lifetime’s worth of passion to make his unique scoops.Read More

It seems like everyone is becoming diary-free, gluten-free, and everything else that sounds remotely healthy. Is it a trend? Will it fade? Who knows. I, for one, have recently become lactose-intolerant. But before I mourned my dairy days, I decided to adjust old, familiar recipes to match my needs. Slowly, I’ve succumbed to my body’s peer pressure and have made a few dairy and gluten-free recipes lately.
I wanted to start off this series with the most original flavor: chocolate chip. (I had to add a twist, though. Cue the vegan caramel syrup.) This recipe, derived from Minimalist Baker, is made with coconut milk which makes the recipe not as heavy as normal ice cream flavors are typically. If you are looking for a light, sweet snack that won’t leave you feeling gross before you hit the sheets, then this recipe is exactly that.

Okay. Now that we’re friends (and that you trust my judgment), I feel that I can assuredly state that I sincerely enjoyed the authentic Irish pairings offered at Cook Halls’ pre-Paddy’s Day beer dinner last Friday.Read More
On Friday, February 28, Gianpiero Lorenzo and Dave Pedack were merely setting up chairs outside of their new cafe for a Facebook photo, when a flood of people stopped by and started enjoying the first fruits of their labor. Lorenzo, from Naples, and Pedack intended to open their brand-new sidewalk street cafe at 1520 Elm Street, aptly named Cafe Strada, quietly. But clearly that didn’t happen.
“We completely sold out of gelato!” Lorenzo tells me. On the very first day, the Euro-style cafe ran out of 20 gallons of house-made gelato. The pistachio, black cherry, and hazelnut mocha—all gone. Only a little bit of mango sorbet was left.Read More
