It's summer and things are heating up. When I was kid there were two dessert choices to cool down: Ice cream or Popcicles. Now? The possibilities go on and on.
It was a cold and delicious job but someone had to do it. For my Good Taste feature in the July issue of M Magazine I photographed (and of course consumed) over a dozen frozen treats. Above are the ones that made the cut. CLICK Here to view the feature online. If you wait just a few seconds the page will load in and you can magnify to read the descriptions.
Included are: Frozen yogurt in Mill Valley, artisan ice cream imported from Ohio, artisan ice cream made in Santa Cruz, Mochi Ice Cream and Hawaiian Shaved Ice in San Jose's Japantown, Taiwanese Snow Ice in Cupertino, a strawberry frost drink with pearls in San Jose, kiwi sorbetto and a coffee gelato bar from the East Bay, and ice cream made with Liquid Nitrogen in Hayes Valley, SF.
Do you read M Magazine? It's a regional, Bay Area magazine "for the woman in every mom." It also happens to be the first publication for which I've become a published food photographer and writer contributing to their "Good Taste" feature.
You can pick up a copy at various locations around the Bay Area including Whole Foods (It's a complimentary (free) magazine. You'll probably spot it near the door on your way out. For moms, moms-to-be, and foodies who don't live in the Bay Area you can view the magazine online by CLICKING HERE
