 “Chosen in November 2011 as one of Travel Channel’s “America’s Coolest Ice Cream Shops”, LA Creamery Artisan Ice Cream in Los Angeles goes above and beyond the typical frozen dessert creation. The first ice cream shop in LA to use completely organic dairy products, LA Creamery excels at providing delicious unique flavors like pistachio rose and honey lavender (my fave!) with no preservatives, antibiotics, hormones or anything artificial. Stock up on pints at Joan’s on Third and select Umami Burger locations.”

Limited Edition Hatch Chile Ice Cream

by L.A. Creamery News 0 Comments

If you haven’t been made aware, let me just inform you that we are crazy for Hatch Chiles at Bristol Farms. So, it was a no-brainer when we were provided with an opportunity to partner with local ice cream artisans from L.A. Creamery to develop a Bristol Farms exclusive, limited edition Hatch Chile Ice Cream to offer our customers during Hatch Chile season. You may be skeptical, but I assure you – if you love Hatch Chiles, you will LOVE this ice cream. The flavor delivers the perfect peppery zing and smokiness from the chile, and finishes off with a zesty aftertaste. Those that shy away from spicy foods need not worry – the cream cuts any spice you would typically get from Hatch Chiles.

Our Hatch Chile ice cream is great enjoyed on its own, but we had the pleasure of enjoying a scoop sandwiched between two of our Hatch Chocolate Cherry Cookies from our Bakery. This was a winner! This ultimate Hatch Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich is a must try.

These ice creams were made in small artisan batches exclusively for Bristol Farms and will only be around until they sell out. So, starting August 22nd, grab them while you can! Let us know how you enjoy it.

How cool are Hatch chiles? They’re frozen in L.A. Creamery’s new ice cream

by L.A. Creamery Press 0 Comments

SafariHaving lived a good part of my life in New Mexico, I have seen some wacky things done in the name of green chile. I have done some myself. And sometimes they have even tasted good. L.A. Creamery has just come up with one.

I remember back in the olden times, before there was a chile roaster on every corner, we’d have to take our bushels of green to neighborhood bakeries, which would close down for one or two days a week to use their ovens for roasting massive amounts of chiles. The one near me would collect the juices and the little bits of schmutz that was left over and knead it into bread dough. Really good.

Back in the ‘80s, when beurre blanc was the height of sophistication, I sometimes stirred a few roasted, peeled, chopped green chiles into mine. Served with a trout mousse, it was pretty terrific – at least that’s how I remember it (I know beurre blanc has gone the way of all trended-out dishes, but does anyone even make mousse anymore either?).

L.A. Creamery’s  spin is even stranger. They add an essence of roasted green chiles to vanilla ice cream to make their Hatch Green Chile ice cream, which goes on sale Saturday in an exclusive at Bristol Farms stores.

We got an early batch to sample and I’ve got to say that odd as it sounds, it’s actually kind of good. It’s made with the juice from the roasted green chiles, so at first glance, it looks like plain vanilla, with a very pale greenish tint – like maybe it’s seasick or something. There’s little or no heat, but there is a very clean, pure flavor of roasted chiles that balances nicely with the creamy vanilla.

It’s one of those dishes that evokes a double-take: First you taste vanilla ice cream, then you pick up that roasted pepper flavor coming up behind. As a friend of mine used to say, “Weird but good.”

It’s $7.49 for a 14-ounce carton. It’s a very limited run, and it’s done when this batch is sold, so if it sounds good, you’d better hurry.

And as long as we’re going on about green chile, here’s a reminder that there’s still a couple of weeks left in the Hatch chile season. Here are the roastings still remaining on our schedule:
