When in Brooklyn: BLUE MARBLE

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Today's New York Times Dining Section includes an article on Blue Marble, a homemade ice cream shop in Brooklyn, that has added soft serve cones to their menu.  Perhaps dreaming of ice cream on a warm summers evening will help warm my bones on this cold & gray Atlanta morning!  Read on for more details from Florence Fabricant of the NY Times....

"When Jennie Dundas and Alexis Miesen opened Blue Marble, a shop selling homemade ice cream on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, back in 2007, their checklist included organic ingredients, 16 percent butterfat and a child-friendly setting. Soft-serve ice cream was not in the picture there or at their second shop, in Prospect Heights. “It didn’t seem to have a quality connotation,” Ms. Dundas said. Then she tasted the version that Billy Barlow was churning out at Bonita, in Fort Greene, which has since closed."

"With Mr. Barlow, Ms. Dundas’s boyfriend, as an unofficial consultant, Blue Marble has introduced soft serve at its newest shop, in Cobble Hill. Creamy, crenelated pinnacles in bright vanilla, deep chocolate or a swirl of both, are lower in butterfat (10 percent) than the shop’s regular ice cream so that they can be churned from the machine. The ice cream is eggless but has some organic soy lecithin as a stabilizer. Chocolate nibs from Nunu Chocolates in Boerum Hill are an optional topping."
"Soft-serve ice cream from Blue Marble, 196 Court Street (Wyckoff Street), Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, (718) 858-0408, is $3.89 for a regular serving, $2.90 for a mini."
