The sweet science of ice cream: Taste Buds

Stephanie Hansen learns the science behind small-batch ice cream with Ashlee Olds, owner of Sweet Science Ice Cream. Somewhere between tempering egg yolks and mixing the perfect bite of cookies and cream, she learns an important lesson: handcrafted ice cream is a lot of work – but it is so worth it.
