A Passion for Ice Cream

I first created this dessert for Mickey and Minnie at Disney’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival in Orlando, Florida. Nicole Lago, the Farallon restaurant purchasing agent, and I were a human assembly line as we put together over six hundred sandwiches. It was sweltering in the kitchen, and to keep the ice cream from melting, the Epcot purchasing agents loaned us the winter parkas they wear for putting food away in the large walk-in freezers. We assembled the sandwiches in a freezer. We laughed as our fingers got frozen stiff and thought about how it was 85°F outside. I wrapped each in a strip of parchment paper and sealed it with a Farallon sticker, making pickup and devouring simple. Go to your local paper shop and find a festive sticker of your own.
