Ice Cream Tasting at the Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain this Sunday!

Please join us this Sunday, July 18th at the Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain from 1:30 to 3:30 and meet our "Ice Cream Guy," Paul Nasrani of Adirondack Creamery. Paul will be sampling his all-natural Kulfi-Pistachio Cardamom, and talking up his ice cream dreams.

Some Back Story. (We love a good story!)

Paul spent the summers of his youth on a small Pennsylvania farm where at the end of a long work day he always found the energy to help churn batches of fresh homemade ice cream. It was there that his dream of creating an ice cream company was hatched. But not until 2002, after working nearly a decade in corporate finance, did Paul began realizing his Ice Cream Dream. He produced small batches of ice cream in his studio apartment and received tremendous feedback from co-workers and friends.  One cold winter day he happened to be passing through Grand Central Station and stumbled onto an auction for an ice cream/frozen custard shop. Paul walked away with a batch freezer for ice cream production. It didn't take long for the rest of the story to unfold. Within a year, he left his career in finance to make ice cream full-time.

Closer to the Cow
Holding fast to his vision to design all natural ice cream with no artificial ingredients, additives or preservatives, Paul always knew that the closer to the cow you could keep the ice cream, the better it would be. In 2006, Paul teamed up with the Boice Brothers Dairy in Kingston, NY, which was established in 1914 and to this day continues to be operated by the Boice family. With this new partnership in place, Paul was able to design and make his own ice cream based on an old-fashioned recipe of cream, milk, sugar and egg yolks. Today Adirondack Creamery is a successful, independently owned and operated company which operates directly inside the dairy. Paul's ice cream is made from the hormone-free milk and cream which arrives at the dairy each day from 8 family farms! 

BF&SF strives to be Fresh, Friendly and Local. Adirondack Creamery rises to the occasion on all fronts.
Fresh: Small batches made from milk and cream from eight family-run dairies. Hormone-free, all natural ingredients.
Friendly: Well, just come on in and meet him this Sunday, 7/18 from 1:30 to 3:30. He's one of the friendliest guys we've met!
