Goat Cheese Ice Cream


These days the heat is gentle, the sun is bright, and the produce is abundant.  Of course, the best place to get fresh, colorful fruit and veg is from your local farmer.  I highly encourage personal relationships with the people who keep food on our tables.  This month I was fortunate to participate in several chefs for farmers events where local farms donated seasonal products for my cooking enjoyment.  I will be serving goat cheese ice cream with beet mousse at the Coppell Farmer’s Market Farm to Table Dinner this weekend.  A big thanks to Latte Da Dairy, D Bar Ranch, Texas Olive Ranch, and Round Rock Honey for these delicious ingredients.
