When everything else is upside-down, cook. Bake. Follow instructions carefully, and make something. When you add flour to warm butter, it thickens and needs milk. When you melt chocolate, be patient. These are the bases and certainties that make comfort.

It’s not something you necessarily notice on the first watch, but “Orange Is The New Black” is essentially a cooking show set in a prison. Food is used over and over again as a storytelling device that reveals power, values and cultural differences between characters. Watch and learn.
Sweet Cream with Molasses & Peanuts
Sweet cream and grass-grazed milk with pockets of blackstrap molasses and fistfuls of crunchy, roasted, and salted Virginia peanuts. This flavor is a Charleston-exclusive found only in our King Street scoop shop.

Imagine if you found out that all craft brewers made beer from an off-the-shelf beer mix and just added a couple of drops of flavoring to it before bottling it under their “craft beer” label. When I first started making ice creams, I assumed that an ice cream kitchen would look like any busy bakery or pastry kitchen, that cooks and chefs would be at their stations in white aprons making ice cream. It’s not true. Most so-called artisan, homemade, or craft ice creams are made with purchased liquid or powdered ice cream mixes and added flavorings and colorings. Anybody can add flavorings to a mix. To actually craft an ice cream from scratch is to choose ingredients at their peak and understand how to use them.
