Learn How To Make Smoked Bourbon Vanilla Ice Cream Courtesy Of #HomeIsTheKey

I recently had the opportunity to flex my very limited cooking skills at Sur La Table as part of an “Advanced Skills for Adventurous Cooks” class held by Habitat For Humanity’s Home Is The Key program. The menu for the class boasted a handful of intricate eats, including salt block scallops with classic beurre blanc and a beluga lentil sandal with preserved lemon vinaigrette.

Given that I’m in the business of all things Lushworthy, one of my favorites from the evening was the smoked bourbon vanilla ice cream. It was so rich and surprisingly easy to make. In case you’re interested in making your own batch of smoked bourbon vanilla ice cream, which I highly suggest, I’ve listed the full recipe below.
