The Secret History of Ice Cream
July 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Masters of Social Gastronomy, aka Sarah Lohman of Four Pounds Flour and Jonathan Soma of the Brooklyn Brainery, are back with the next installment in their series exploring the science and history of foods. Up this month: The Secret History of Ice Cream.
Sarah will unearth the stories behind our favorite ice cream treats and share some of history’s wildest bygone flavors – that may be due for a revival. By the end of the night, you’ll be able to answer questions like: which came first, chocolate or vanilla? The ice cream sandwich or the ice cream cone? Neapolitan or liquid nitrogen?
Meanwhile, Soma will show you the science behind making the perfect batch at home, and Big Ice Cream’s tricks for plumping up their profit margins. We’ll also track frozen desserts across the globe, from Italian gelato to dondurma, the magically stretchy ice cream from Turkey.
Doors will open at 6:30pm, with talks beginning at 7:00pm. Admission is $10 when purchased in advance; $12 at the door. Please note this is a mixed seated and standing venue. Please arrive early for the best seats.
