Bi-Rite Creamery's Cara Cara Orange Cardamom Ice Cream

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz Post a comment

This ice cream is full of flavor and subtle all at once. Steeping cardamom pods in cream brings out all their layers of flavor, which are heightened by the citrus and bitter notes of the orange zest. Lots of ice creams are best served alongside some other dessert; this is fantastic enough to ride solo. More

Our cookbook giveaway and recipe series usually run through four recipes, but I couldn't resist sneaking in this last one from Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones. And I'm glad I did, because this is my new favorite ice cream flavor. This is the flavor that has me kicking myself for not thinking of it first. More

Scoop the Book: Bi-Rite Creamery's Buttermilk Ice Cream

Sweets Max Falkowitz 3 comments

Hidden among the sexier-sounding flavors in Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones, you'll find this demure buttermilk ice cream. You'll probably skip over it on the way to salted caramel indulgences and playful almond fudge ripples. But you should come back, really, because buttermilk ice cream is just plain smart. It's bright and twangy, and as you start making pies and cobblers with every fruit that comes your way, it's the ice cream that you want plopped on top. More

Scoop the Book: Bi-Rite Creamery's Smooth and Mellow Chocolate Ice Cream

Every dessert maker should have a solid chocolate ice cream in their arsenal. Really, two: a crazy dark one, and a milder, milkier one. This recipe falls decidedly into the latter category, and it may be the best version of a milk chocolate ice cream that I've ever had. It's definitely chocolate-forward, and plenty rich, but it really lets the milkiness of lower cocoa chocolates shine. Should you want to branch out to peanut butter chocolate swirls, rocky roads, or chocolate brownie chunk ice creams, this should be your base. More

Scoop the Book: Bi-Rite Creamery's Strawberry Balsamic Ice Cream

Sweets Max Falkowitz Post a comment

This is a bright, fresh, and impressively fruity ice cream that rises above the strawberry pack. A touch of balsamic vinegar adds sweet complexity and some of the acidity lost by cooking the fruit. More

Bi-Rite Creamery's Salted Caramel Ice Cream

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz 8 comments

[Photograph: Max Falkowitz] The salted caramel ice cream from Bi-Rite Creamery is one of the best I've ever tasted. It's wildly complex, a tad smoky, and just salty enough. Just as important, it's ridiculously creamy thanks to an especially high... More

Scoop the Book: Bi-Rite Creamery's Salted Caramel Ice Cream

Sweets Max Falkowitz 9 comments

Before there was salted caramel everything, there was Bi-Rite's salted caramel ice cream. It's by far the scoop shop's most popular flavor, and with good reason. This stuff is aces. The caramel is bitter, smoky, and intensely complex, but sweet cream has a way of rounding out all its nastiness for a scoop you really just can't stop eating. More

Scoop the Book: Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones from Bi-Rite Creamery

Even though it was years ago, I remember my first bite of San Francisco's Bi-Rite ice cream. It was salted caramel, of course, and it was more than a little transcendent. "This is what American ice cream should taste like," I thought. Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones is a beautiful guide to the world of American ice cream. This week we'll be churning up some of Bi-Rite's most loved flavors and giving away five copies of the cookbook. More

6 Ice Cream Sundaes We Love in San Francisco

Sweets Lauren Sloss 5 comments

San Francisco has become quite the town for ice cream, despite hot days being a rarity. Rather than finding this incongruous, we think it's a sign of the city's true dedication to its frozen treats. With that in mind, we set out to find the best ice cream sundaes San Francisco had to offer, armed with little but our love of dairy and a hefty supply of Lactaid. More

Bi-Rite Creamery for Sunny Days in San Francisco

I grew up in Southern California where we had long hot summers, walked slowly in the heat, and spent endless days at the beach with friends. I first moved to San Francisco in April 2000 and spent the first... More
