I never need an excuse to eat ice cream but incentive is never a bad thing. So, here is an incentive to head to Humphry Slocombe on Abbot Kinney in Venice....Ice Cream Happy Hour! What more do you need to know other than every Wednesday, between 2pm and 6pm, if you purchase a single scoop, your friend will get a free scoop. Well, perhaps you want to know what you will find at Humphry Slocombe.
Humphry Slocombe opened their first store in 2008 in the Ferry Building in San Francisco. Today there are locations in the Mission District and Oakland and last summer, in August 2019, they opened a location in Venice Beach. The compact space has a bright, casual, inviting feel.
I love ice cream. And this week while on a trip to Paso Robles, I found Negranti Creamery. A family owned ice cream company based in Paso Robles, Negranti Creamery is the Please The Palate pick of the week.
Negranti Creamery was created by Alexis and Wade Negranti who met at Cal Poly. Both had good jobs when Alexis decided that she wanted to start a sheep dairy. Neither one of them had milked an animal before. They milked their first ewes in 2011 and got their license in 2012. Today they are the first licensed sheep's milk production facility for ice cream in the US.
