Here’s the Scoop…The Roxbury community has a chance to take part in a Roxbury Ice Cream Challenge,

Thanks to the combined efforts of Laura Richards and Ruth Falvey’s Roxbury High School’s Culinary I class and Cliff’s Homemade Ice Cream in Ledgewood, NJ.Richards reached out to Cliff’s Ice Cream and asked if they’d be interested in working with students on an “ice cream wars” type of competition in which the students work in groups to develop the best ice cream flavor that represents Roxbury and their local community.

Students came up with so many fun and delicious flavors like Swan Daddy Swirl, Bryant Drive Brownie Delight, Fenimore Landfill, and many others. After reviewing all the flavors, the owner of Cliff’s Homemade Ice Cream selected three of the students’ submissions:

Now, we’re looking for the community’s help to choose the next flavor to be featured at Cliff’s Homemade Ice Cream this summer!

The flavor that gets the most votes based on the description will win a featured spot on Cliff’s summer ice cream menu and will be available for purchase throughout the summer.

Vote now through April 23rd at www.roxbury.org/IceCream.

“This competition all came about as students in Culinary I were learning about cooking with dairy foods and how skillful cooks can use dairy products when creating fun and exciting foods,” shared Richards.

Adding, “Dairy is part of a healthful diet. Students in this class spend time learning about the vitamins and minerals in dairy products as well as how making smart choices when selecting dairy-based foods can lead to a healthy lifestyle. Students learn a variety of techniques and cooking methods to be used to safely prepare these foods.”

Culinary I is part of the Family and Consumer Science program of studies. This full year-course offers a practical approach to basic food preparation and baking techniques to freshman and sophomores. This is a laboratory work experience where students will prepare nutritious recipes as they study each level of the food guide. Students taste test, sample, and evaluate their prepared food products. Other topics covered include eating disorders, kitchen design, and career opportunities in the many fields of food preparation.
