A great read of Amy’s journey tasting and learning about the science and art of Ice Cream.  With over 40 years making, selling, designing ice cream shops, and ice cream recipe consulting I found this book enjoyable and full of good stuff.

I have had the pleasure to work with Matt and his family since i moved to Columbus, Ohio in 1982.  (My audio starts a little rough, but kicks in after a few seconds.)

Matt Wilcoxon, 4th generation ice cream maker, from Columbus, OH, USA, talks about his families ice cream plant and how his dairy stays clean and how you can do the same; no matter how small your ice cream business is.

 Listeria is nothing new, says Matt, just how we treat it.  Sit back and listen to how Matt and his dairy maintains a Listeria-free dairy plant and his thoughts on how the industry is working together to keep ice cream a healthy treat.2016-12-09_0725
