What is it about ice cream? People are head over heals with it in a way that is rarely paralleled with other foods. On a topical episode of Eat Your Words, host Talia Ralph sits down with Brian Smith and Jackie Cuscuna, co-founders of Ample Hills Creamery and co-authors of Ample Hills Creamery - The Cookbook. Find out how Brian's past life as a writer of "monster movie" helps inform his work as an ice cream maker, learn about their plans for a new shop in Gowanus and hear what makes their cookbook stand out from its recipe-driven peers. This program was brought to you by Rolling Press.

"Growing up, ice cream was the first food love that I had. It's uniquely American and part of our mythology." [03:00]

"People think Ample Hills and they don't think Brooklyn. The hills have been paved over but there used to be hills with pastures and dairy farms in Brooklyn. The name is a nice way to touch back on the history of Brooklyn." [12:00]

--Brian Smith on Eat Your Words

"We wanted to invite people into the book the way we invite people into our shop." [21:00]
