The perfect summer Eton Mess Platter

The Eton Mess is a classic dessert that traces its origins to Eton College, the Hogwarts-like British boarding school. The dish is traditionally made with strawberries, broken meringues, and cream. We make ours with macerated berries of all varieties, crushed meringues (handmade or store-bought), ice cream, sorbet, and/or buttermilk frozen yogurt, and piles of softly…

Freestylin’: Coquito Lady Cake

Rich, buttery, and extremely easy to make, Jeni’s Lady Cake needs nothing more than a dusting of powdered sugar and a fresh pile of fruit on the side. Its simplicity also makes it the perfect cake for dressing up — going elegant with a white chocolate glaze, or fresh with a smear of blackberry jam….

Jeni’s still loves Lucius!

We fell hard for Lucius a few years ago (and blogged all about). And our love has only grown for the Brooklyn-based band with an indie pop vibe and lauded reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone and The New York Times. Whether you’re super fans like us, or simply want to check out the…

Riesling Poached Pear Sorbet—at home

From Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home, pages 130–131. A surprisingly rich sorbet with the texture of a ripe pear; sweet Riesling notes shine on the finish. This flavor works well even with underripe pears–you just have to poach them a bit longer. If your pears are super ripe and juicy, you won’t need to poach…

Baked Apples with Churro Ice Cream

Baked Apples with Churro Ice Cream You might think of baked apples as a très facile dessert for beginners (which would be true), but we prefer to think of baked apples as a legendarily minimalist, classic-American dish. You can serve them with any full-bodied ice cream—our Churro fits the bill. Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time:…

An update from our CEO John Lowe

We have found Listeria in our production facility again. We discovered the Listeria through routine swabbing as part of our monitoring program. We stopped production earlier this week and have been investigating where and how it may have re-entered the facility. We have a theory and are testing that theory. We don’t yet have a…
