Although Formaggio’s Kitchen specializes in cheese, that doesn’t lessen their enthusiasm for another worthy use of milk – the almighty scoop of ice cream. On Thursday, July 12, beginning at 6:30 pm, join Gus Rancatore, owner of Cambridge ice cream institution Toscanini’s, for a celebration of National Ice Cream Month. Gus will talk about ice cream traditions from around the world, covering American, French, Indian, Italian, and Turkish varieties. He’ll illustrate his talk with plenty of samples, of course. He’ll also answer your questions about the ice cream making process and share a few of his favorite recipes. $45 per person. The class will be held at Formaggio’s classroom annex, 67 Smith Place in Cambridge. To register, visit www.formaggiokitchen.com, or call 617-354-4750.
