The other week, I attended the Eat Real Fest at Jack London Square. To kick off the festival there was an ice cream evening. It wasa 90 degree Friday night, Perfect! Ice cream for dinner. In the name of researchI sampled several scoops of creamy goodness. If I had to pick my last meal on earth it would be ice cream. I partake in ice cream daily, so I think I am an ice cream expert. So here are my top picks!
- St. George Spirits Whiskey Gelato by Gelateria Naia. - unbelievably smooth, with caramel notes. Insane!
- Saffron and Candied Almond Ice Cream by Ici - aromatic and earthy with the fantastic texture of the crunchy nuts.
- Raspberry-Lemon Verbena Ice Cream by Ici - fresh, fruity and the perfect balance between sweet and tart.
Visit Ici at 2948 Ashby Avenue in Berkeley. All of the diary and eggs are organic and flavors change daily and with the season.
