Tipping Cow was recently featured in a great article in Edible Boston. Read all about their philosophy, fun approach and delicious ice cream flavors. Meet Anna and Dang at market this week and try them for yourself!
From the article: “Gaul’s culinary focus is on pure ingredients and creative, bold flavors. “I try to use whatever I get fresh. In the summer, fresh basil is the best thing in the world, so that’s what I use in our Strawberry Basil ice cream.” It’s a hit—no wonder.”
