LN2 Open Source Ice Cream
Bring your own ingredients and we'll see what we can do with them! Any premium ingredients (e.g., hand-shaved vanilla bean) will shine on their own, but “this weird soda I found” may be combined with other ingredients for mad science. We'll also teach the basics (safety, proportions) and coach anyone who wants to learn to stir or do all this on their own! As a reminder, we make inclusive ice cream. We always have non-dairy mix bases available, juices for sorbets, and sugar-free sweeteners on hand. We're prepared, and want everyone to be able to enjoy!
