Lemon cookie, burnt caramel, and cardamom are just a few of the 100-plus rotating flavors available at this all-natural ice cream shop.
Within the narrow confines of Cook, owner-chef Jude Wilmoth, who previously helmed the kitchen at St. Helena's Tra Vigne, prepares casual Northern Italian cuisine using fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
