The Scoop on Jeni’s in Clintonville

September 23rd, 2010    •  by Andy    •   No Comments »

Local ice-cream legend (and valued Columbus Food Adventures partner) Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is opening their newest location in Clintonville on October 1st! And, it’s not just any Jeni’s – in addition to everything that makes any Jeni’s store an instant neighborhood hotspot, this location also includes the additions of freshly brewed Stauf’s coffee and –  oooh yeah – a sundae bar. Aaaand… because all of that by itself just wouldn’t be quite cool enough, the interior of their new space will be built using reclaimed wood from a 100 year old Knox county barn. Their new shop is located at 4247 […]

Weldon's

July 1st, 2010    •  by Bethia    •   2 Comments »

It is often asserted that Columbus is the ice cream capital of the world, and while the city has a very good case,  including the rest of Central Ohio does make a stronger argument for ice cream dominance. Weldon’s have been producing ice cream in the same location for 80 years and their Millersport store, overlooking Buckeye Lake would be another jewel in the crown. My first visit to Weldon’s was a welcome reward for a long, hot bike ride through seemingly endless cornfields. Entering the store you have the sense of stepping back in time: painted wooden benches, an […]

In the kitchen

Inspired by Robin Davis and by being able to see the back of the cupboard for the first time in years, I have been on a mission to use-up, reduce and turn over. Targets include bags of rice and grains that have been in the cupboard for 6 months or more, jars that have been open too long, anything with freezer burn and all the things I bought thinking that I would use, and haven't. I made a list of all of the meals or dishes we could make based on what we had in the freezer and cupboard and was astounded at how long it was.

Localicious: Local Foods Week Columbus

October 9th, 2009    •  by Andy    •   4 Comments »

I attended some wonderful events during the week including the Market to Market Bike Ride, North Market Harvest Festival, A benefit dinner at Alana's and A Cow to Cone tour at Jeni's Ice Cream. Coincidentally our Slow Food Locavore Dinner at Otter Creek was also held during local foods week, so it really was a localicious week. As soon as I heard about the tour of Jeni's I called to book a spot and I am so glad that I did. This rare behind the scenes tour guided by Jeni was limited to twenty people (the reason became obvious as we squeezed into the kitchen and completely disrupted production) and had a wait-list of 50 plus.

In the Month of Mayw

May 31st, 2009    •  by Bethia    •   4 Comments »

I’m playing catch up again, so another month of highlights. It’s hard to know where to start, there have been so many this month. Probably most memorable was my first trip to Yellow Springs. I had heard so much about Yellow Springs but it lived up to the hype, helped by perfect weather over Mother’s Day weekend. It reminded me of Northampton MA, where I used to live. Smaller and quieter but the same crunchy, relaxed vibe. We camped at John Bryan State Park and ate our way through Yellow Springs, hitting Young’s Dairy, The Winds Cafe (dinner), Sunrise Cafe […]
