Seminar 109 – Frequently Asked Questions

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND SEMINAR 109
Learning how to actually create a dairy free ice cream frozen dessert is not something you can learn from a book. The components of a dairy free frozen dessert are complex, requiring the knowledge base of how each ingredient counteracts with other ingredients depending on the base used, whether, soy, almond, coconut, or cashew. Our seminar class is 100% hands-on with the students making all the products for all three days using many different dairy free bases

WHAT TOPICS DOES SEMINAR 109 COVER
Two days of a 100% hands-on personalized educational experience that is geared strictly to teach potential new dairy free ice cream producers the “ins and outs” of producing great frozen dairy free dessert products. This seminar program has been organized to take you on a step by step road so that when leaving here you will feel more comfortable about both the Emery Thompson and Carpigiani batch freezer and the process of batch freezer production, and how all of this relates to someone (your customers) wanting to create and operate their own dairy free ice cream concept.

Day 1

Morning Session
We will have an opening orientation about making dairy free frozen dessert products using a pasteurizer, and batch freezers from Emery Thompson and Carpigiani, and why both produce great dairy free ice cream.

  • The discussion will include the four bases we will be producing- Soy, Almond, Cashew, and Coconut.
  • Now it time for all of us to get to get started making the first two bases- Soy and Almond
  • 12:30 PM – 1:15 PM:  Lunch- At the seminar

Afternoon Session:
We will start out with a great Vanilla soy and almond based ice cream. In our industry, whether it’s dairy or dairy free -there’s an old saying; “you are always judged by the vanilla you produce.”

Developing a great Chocolate ice cream takes patience, but the results are just terrific. As a group it is second only to vanilla in sales.

Day 2
We will first produce two new bases- Cashew and Coconut

  • Producing nut flavors. Nut flavors are increasing in popularity and variations yearly.
  • Creating fruit flavors and their off shoots are a lot of fun and in the summer you will probably produce more fruit flavors as a category than anything else, and creating candy based flavors, one of  the hottest flavor line to hit our industry in years.

12:30 PM – 1:15 PM:  Lunch- At the seminar

  • Learning how to incorporate other ingredients like baked goods into a frozen dessert flavor like Strawberry non dairy cheesecake ice cream
  • We will spend the balance of the afternoon preparing various with Cashew and Coconut as the base for various flavors.

Day 3
We will spend the morning making flavors of your choice, and producing other dairy free products like baked muffins, cookies, and brownies

12:30 PM – 1:15 PM:  Lunch- At the seminar

After lunch we will have a wrap discussion of everything you learned and answer all questions.

Seminar ends at 3:00PM
