It's hard to forget your first ice cream cone. Donna McCormack of Wellington's Feast & Vine Scream-licious Ice Cream thinks of hand churned ice cream & handmade cones as the ultimate comfort food. A feeling that probably goes back to her rural upbringing in Northern California. That is where her interest in the study of tastes & flavours, wine & food matching and cooking in general began.
Donna's philosophy about ingredients is really very simple - make sure you eat the real stuff and the freshest local ingredients you can find - like real butter, real eggs and real vanilla. The kind of ingredients that you find at Urban Harvest, ingredients and produce from farm to table suppliers, just the way Donna has always liked it too.
With Donna's collection of small batch savoury scream-licious ice creams, and cone-licious orange zest hand crafted cones, Donna hopes the Urban Harvest family will be delighted to explore unique ice cream flavours & tastes for a new sensory experience.
