Chef and owner Michelle LeBlanc has finally scooped up a restaurant style ice cream machine and house made ice cream is hitting the menu at Chinched!

Chef LeBlanc previously opened and ran growlers Ice Cream Shop on Fogo Island in 2010. There she took advantage of her culinary background and created unique and local flavors, along with the classic favorites. Flavors of juniper, rasin bread and partridge berry tart were as common as classics like strawberry or chocolate. They all had one thing in common however, they were all delicious.
