Ice Cream Cones

Ice cream has been around for ages, but it’s evolved a lot over the years. You can learn about that evolution by attending the Mount Vernon Kitchen on July 21. Tickets are $35 per person. Once inside, you’ll learn how ice cream was made back in the 18th century. This isn’t just a basic ice cream lesson, though. It also involves a scavenger hunt and a history lesson.

Ready, Set, Find the Ingredients

These days, you just go to the grocery store and buy some ice cream, but this adventure is about the good old days. You aren’t going to walk up to the local grocery store and get items for the ice cream. No, you’re going to take off on a historical scavenger hunt. You’ll visit locations and find ingredients that played an important role in ice cream production in the 18th century. You’ll learn quite a bit along the way, but remember, each time you find an ingredient, you’re one step closer to enjoying the sweet stuff. You need to work quickly so you can eat your ice cream.
