Our impatience is not one of our finest qualities — especially when it comes to waiting in line. The number of times we’ve mocked people waiting to get into a bar on Friday night, well, it’s just not nice. But karma’s a bitch, and we stand in line far too often now that Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is open. In fact, we now willingly wait in line for the sweet taste of their frozen treats. So when we heard that Jeni herself — that’s Jeni Britton Bauer — was coming to town to teach a class, we freaked — and we’re talking a tween who just met Harry Styles from One Direction freakout. The ice cream guru stops by Charleston Cooks! for a demonstration of her recipes from her latest book Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts, including cream puffs with salty vanilla frozen custard, Jennifer juniper parfait, and Eton mess platter. “My home ice cream recipe is different than any others out there, because it’s all about texture and body. It’s not just beautiful flavors that make ice cream such a delight. In my first books, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts, I set myself the challenge of developing recipes that produce the same taste, texture, body, and finish as those we make in our professional kitchens, using ingredients and equipment readily available to a home cook,” Bauer says.
