This week’s Eat Your Words is celebrating the coming of summer with Bryan Petroff and Douglas Quint, founders of the Big Gay Ice Cream. Friends that started with an ice cream truck and saw their business grow into multiple shops across New York City and now coming to Los Angeles, chat with Cathy about their phenomenal growth as well as their new book “Big Gay Ice Cream: Saucy Stories & Frozen Treats: Going All the Way with Ice Cream.” Are you new to making ice cream? Never fear! Starting off simple, the book instructs with store-bought toppings and ingredients and eventually works up to homemade sorbets and creative ice creams! Tune in for a fun discussion on the best summer treat. This program was brought to you by Bonnie Plants.
“I see ice cream as probably the best comfort food out there and it’s something that every child loves and pretty much every adult loves too. There’s something about when you eat it… you’re transported back to moments in time: food as a memory.” [14:30]
