Best of: Isaac Mizrahi, Homemade Tomato Sauce & Mint Chip Ice Cream
We are hard at work on a brand new episode of ‘Your Last Meal,’ but until then we are re-releasing an updated version of one of our favorite interviews with Isaac Mizrahi!
Acclaimed fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi has it all: humor, heart and hot takes on the culinary world. He knows what he likes (Long Island beefsteak tomatoes) and what he doesn’t like (calling lemon juice “acid”) and he shares it all with James Beard Award nominated host, Rachel Belle.
When Isaac sends Rachel on a mission to uncover a mint chocolate chip ice cream mystery, she summons Ben & Jerry’s flavor guru, Eric Fredette, who’s responsible for creating flavors like The Tonight Dough and Brownie Batter Core, Heather Hodge, head chef at Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream in Seattle, and Nestle’s test kitchen manager, Meredith Tomason. Nestle invented the chocolate chip back in the 1940s and Meredith shares the history of the legendary Toll House chocolate chip cookie.
Months after this episode originally aired, Rachel and Isaac met up in Isaac’s Manhattan kitchen to cook together. You can watch those videos here!
