I think today
is the perfect day to bid
one last farewell
to the fondest season of all.
A farewell to long summer days
and dinners outside.
To late night swims
and marshmallows by the fire.
To fishing trips,
and lazy afternoons.
A farewell made up of
chocolate chip mint and handmade cones.
And drum roll please,
our new ice cream cone rollers!
HANDMADE ICE CREAM CONES
2 (60g) egg whites, room temperature
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon (60g) icing sugar
15 grams granulated sugar
1 teaspoon (5g) pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon (42g) all purpose flour, sifted
a pinch of salt
2 tablespoons (30g) unsalted butter, melted
unsalted butter for greasing the iron
In a medium bowl whisk together both types of sugar. Add the whites and whip until the mixture is frothy and ribbons begin to appear. Add the vanilla. Whisk in flour and salt and beat until well combined. Stir in the butter. Bake in a prepared and preheated waffle iron made especially for cones until golden. (As a general rule I bake 1 tablespoon of batter for 1 minute and 25 seconds on setting 5, but your machine may have different settings.) Repeat, greasing your iron as you go. Roll each waffle immediamtely after it comes off the machine (small cotton or latex gloves are helpful here). I like to leave a little space at the top of each roller but practice to get a shape you love, I think that’s the fun part! You’ll notice in these photos that I fold the bottom of my cones, but this is not necessary, it’s simply an aesthitic choice. If you’d like them more traditional just skip folding them and pinch the bottoms into a clean point.
For those looking for a more traditional size we’ll be adding a larger roller size to the shop in the next while.
And we’re updating, watch for new items on Monday September 24th at 6pm EDT.
Join the list here.

A year ago now,
John Cullen and I
packed our bags
and headed to my parent’s farm
on Vancouver Island.
We had decided only a couple weeks earlier
that we’d like to make a film
about what it is my father does.
About who he is and how he got there.
A film about what Herriott Grace means to him.
And so we did and it was amazing.
In large part,
what we do at HG is possible
because you guys
encourage and support us,
and we think that makes us a pretty lucky pair.
So thank you.
And thank you to John Cullen,
Paul Proux at Stealing Time
and Supplemental Films.
I’m so very grateful.
ps: the full version of the film will be available here on june 14

we’re in instyle magazine this month

i made a cake yesterday.
i whisked eggs,
i cooked sugar
and i greased pretty old pans.
i made custard
and i cooled it on the machine.
a habit i picked up years ago now,
but still use just the same.
i like the texture it brings
the smooth and velvety
that yolks and milk and sugar
when cooked together
and cooled in motion, make.
i cut layers from bouncy sponge
i filled them with the smooth of custard
and the fresh of raspberries.
pretty yellow speckled
with black and dotted with red.
i placed one layer atop the next
and i stacked them until
every bit of six were filled.
i made buttercream
i piped swirls,
i lit the wicks of two tiny candles and i did it all because
back on a windy day in november,
herriott grace turned two.
and we’re so pleased about that.
and so from both my father and i,
and from the very bottom
of our hearts, thank you.
thank you for being here with us,
for supporting us,
and for understanding what it is we do.
we feel lucky and grateful
and pretty darn happy about it.
and so from us to you,
leave a comment on this post
before january 18th
and we’ll send a package
to one of you that includes:
