About Custard-Based Ice Cream Making Adult Class

Join Chef Melissa McCullough in the farm kitchen to learn the art of homemade custard-based ice cream! Participants will tackle every step of the ice cream making process, from tempering the custard, to building the flavors, and churning the base. We’ll be making three separate flavors to share including mint chocolate, vanilla, and a fun herbaceous variety to be announced based on what is growing in our garden and around the island. Each participant will take home three pints total, one of each variety.
