The Pantry Part 7 -- Ice Cream

crab bowl.JPEGSpring is in the air. Doesn't it put you in the mood for some ice cream??

This week on the pantry, All in a Weekend's food correspondent Jennifer Warren visits Fred Morin at his Montreal restaurant Joe Beef.

Fred's cuisine has been written up in The New York Times and Bon Appetit. But the most buzzed-about dish on Fred's menu lately isn't exactly high-end gourmet. It's soft-serve ice cream.

He comes up with the most Suessian creations -- like the ice cream crab dish you see in the picture. (Check out our Facebook page for more of Fred's outrageous soft serve presentations.)

And Marc Faubert shows up at the studio with a TROLLEY LOAD (we're not exaggerating. Again, check out and this video Facebook for evidence.)

Marc the coordinator of Laiterie Coaticook in Coaticook, Quebec. Coaticook ice cream is a classic Quebec-made product. You might just have one of their see-through tubs sitting in your freezer right now.

Marc tells us about how far some people go in their love of ice cream, and what it's like to have an office in an ice cream factory.
