I scream, you scream
“I wanted to do something creative and tactile,” Phillips explained about her change in direction. She loved making ice cream, so she went to culinary school and honed her skills, found a business partner — Ceasar Angobaldo — and the plan was in motion. Lottie’s promises to feature unique flavors such as Sephardic Honey (crème fraîche, honey and rum raisins) and, according to the website, it is the only “Bay Area microcreamery pasteurizing ingredients on site for maximum control over the texture and balance.” Phillips named Lottie’s for her grandmother, who lived next door when she was growing up, and with whom she spent many hours baking and cooking. “Ice cream brings back wonderful childhood memories,” she notes.

On a personal note, next week my friend Phyllis Wollins Zisman from Albany and I will be back in Akron, Ohio, visiting with very old (in a good way) friends. It’s our (yikes!) 50-year high school reunion. We’ll get together with the class at the big events, and hopefully remember one another. But we’ll also spend special time with the “girls” from Lazari, the club we formed for high school night at the Akron Jewish Center. Through the Lazari (named for Emma Lazarus, who wrote the poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty) and our JCC, we formed bonds that have lasted all these years and across the country. Sometimes you can go home again.
