This Throwback Thursday, our National Ice Cream Month festivities continue with this glimpse back at the unusual, yet decadent chocolate pound cake with toasted bread crumb ice cream, served at the Pioneers and Legends dinner at the Beard House, earlier this year. This dinner welcomed award-winning chef and president of Women Chefs and Restaurateurs, Elizabeth Falkner, alongside a group of influential female toques from some of the country’s leading restaurants. 

Creamy and frosty scoops of ice cream, whether they’re served in a cup with hot fudge, piled high in a crunchy waffle cone, nestled between two cookies, or served atop a piece of chocolate cake, have been the ultimate comfort food for generations, satisfying sweet tooths of all ages. While National Ice Cream Day is officially July 19, it’s only fitting that we honor such an adored treat with an entire month of celebratory indulging. The beauty of this rich and velvety treat lies in the endless abundance of flavors we enjoy on a daily basis.  Just remember, you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream—which is pretty much the same thing.
