Looking Glass and Sugar & Snow Collaborate in the name of Great Gelato

sugar and snow

Two Asheville Area businesses, Looking Glass Creamery and Sugar & Snow Gelato are teaming up in the name of delicious gelato. Sugar & Snow Gelato is a local company that has always made their popular line of gelato from scratch. They use simple whole ingredients in their proprietary gelato recipes, versus a commercially prepared base from unknown origins that is the more typical starting point of many ice cream and gelato makers. Local sourcing and top-quality ingredients have always been important to Amy Pickett, founder of Sugar & Snow. She has used creamline milk and heavy cream from North Carolina farms from day one. When it came time to find another dairy provider to keep up with demand, she saw an opportunity to bring her sourcing even closer to home. She decided to reach out to Jennifer Perkins of Looking Glass Creamery to see if there was a possibility of using the milk from the company’s herd of pasture based dairy cows.
