Coffee And White Russian ice cream, from Wheeler’s Black Label Vegan Ice Cream
And I mean the best ice cream you’ve (n)ever had. And it wasn’t just chocolate and vanilla or (god forbid) hemp and carob. Our choices were rum raisin, peanut butter, pumpkin and white russian, which tasted like a luscious liqueur spiked vanilla latte – only in creamy frozen form with a generous handful of white chocolate chips.
The namesake of the ice cream first made the ice cream in… god, he told me the whole story and I forgot. He either went to Harvard or MIT where they built replicas of 19th century ice cream makers. I think that’s why the texture of this ice cream is so slammin’, he built his own forking machine!
Judging from the highly uninformative website, the ice cream will be available in Boston sometime in November. This was their first business venture out. But I expect that he won’t have any problems getting it out to the masses sometime soon.

Other than that, we sold copies of Veganomicon like hotcakes and met lots of people that we had only known from the internet. Of course, we mostly stuck to our NYC friends who had a hard time figuring out how to use a cookbook.

We got some quality time with Lauren and Josh and picked up some promotional mini-book previews of Vegan Yum Yum. They are both coming down today for an event at Moo Shoes*, so we plan on getting even more quality time. In fact, maybe too much quality time. I’m beginning to feel like I need my space.
*That event is Josh reading from the latest issue of Herbivore. You should come and check out Moo Shoes’ new space. And, fine, listen to Josh’s reading, too. I think it starts at 8pm, but I can’t find the info on their site.
