For this episode Aarón and Zarela were thrilled to have Fany Gerson return to the show. Fany launched the acclaimed La Newyorkina, an artisanal Mexican frozen treats and sweets business, and is also the chef, founder and co-owner of Fan-Fan Doughnuts. There could not be a more knowledgable guest for an episode all about Mexican sweets!
Together they illuminate how Ice Cream is just as regional as every other component of Mexican Food. They touch on specialties from Oaxaca, Veracruz, Campeche, and more. For instance, Fany tells us about an ice cream shop near Dolores Hidalgo that specializes in ice cream flavored with cacti!
Zarela also shares early memories of doughnuts and ice cream on the ranch, and Aaron and Fany encourage you to try making ice cream at home.
