with Apple-Beet Jam & Candied Walnuts
Chef Brian Malarkey of Herb & Wood, San Diego
Chef Brian first moved to San Diego to helm Oceanaire, where he earned a reputation for his modern and flavorful approach to seafood. A season Top Chef later, Brian’s “celebrity-chefdom” led to the opening of Herb & Wood in 2016, where his dishes have become known for integrating a ton of acidity and intensely beautiful flavors, focusing on utilizing the bounty of Southern California farms.
The flavor we created together is deceptively simple, featuring very few ingredients—beets, goat cheese, apples—that each come through in every scoop in ways that will blow your mind. Each scoop of this ice cream whirls together beet ice cream and goat cheese gelato, while candied walnuts shotgun themselves through both layers alongside a punchy swirl of bright beet and apple jam.
