Madisono's Gelato and Sorbet is now on Twitter. I have to say that I am not realy sure exactly what that means. I think it is a way for me to bother a bunch of people at the same time or for them to bother me. I like being bothered so pleas follow Madisono's and send me tweets. I have to say that I quite like the name too. Summer is in full swing and so is our production. We have two new flavors going into Bigg's on July 13th. They are Pistachio and Lime Cilantro sorbet. The professional staff at Margot Madison Creative Stationarery has designed another set of labels for the full wrap around pint. They contain the nutrional labels, bar codes and two new factoids. If you have not noticed it each of our dedicated labels for a flavor contain a cool factoid about the flavor inside. Check them out sometime, you may learn something like cocoa pods only grow 15 degrees north or south of the equator!
I want to share a cool site with you. Robert Zins, who is part of the Madisono's team has a new project with his wife Julie. It is called Food Fight. It is a full blown production(you thought I was going to say food fight didn't you.) Check it out and let them know what you think.
In the next day or so I will let you all in on a special flavor that we have been working on for a great restaurant here in Cincinati. You will have to go there to get it. The chef and I also have plans to develop a few more flavors that will be unique. Stay tuned.

Destiny Cruise and Gelato

Last night I had the oppertunity to board the Destiny Cruise Yacht and tour with 75 friends of Public Radio. WVXU and WGUC had their thank you to many of the contributors of the stations. I am a public radio patron myself. Echoes on 91.7 has been part of my nocturn ritual every night. WGUC is background at home and what would life be like without NPR news? Anyway, I offered to donate gelato to the station durring the fund drive and Naomi said she had a better idea. How about serving on the Yacht Destiny? How could I resist? Everyone was a joy to talk to and it was a beautiful night. If you have not heard of Destiney Yachts please check out the link. The owners Mike and Sean are great. Their mom's help out as well as Mike's wife. The food was fantastic. The Wine Merchant provided wine and everyone had a good time. If you need a unique place for an event consider the Destiny.
I want all of you to know that Bigg's is offering a $0.50 off all pints of Madisono's until July 6th.

Ride Cincinnati

Sunday June 14th was a beautiful day for a bike ride. That is what 1800 people did in an effort to raise money for breast cancer research. Cincinnati Ride was started by Allison Gordon who was a good friend of mine in high school. She lost her mother to breast cancer a few years ago and she was also diagnosed with the cancer as well. The event was at Sawyer Point/Yeatman's Cove on the river. They had many food companies there providing food for the riders and their families when done with the ride. Madisono's gelato set up and sampled gelato and sorbet to the delight of everyone there. I had some much needed help from another rider who helped me keep up with the demand. Thanks Karen! She is also involved in the Tour de Montgomery so if you want more information check out the link. Thanks to all who stopped by I hope to see you next year.
