Which Ice-Cream-Truck Treats Do New York Chefs Crave?


When Mario Batali told us about his long-lasting love of Creamsicles, we found ourselves feeling a similar twinge of nostalgia. (What can we say? We've always been suckers for a chocolate-dipped cone from Mister Softee.) And it made us wonder: Are there other chefs out there who secretly pine for the ice-cream-truck treats of their youth? Of course there are! With all the ice-cream madness going on over at New York this week, it seemed like the perfect occasion to ask those chefs what those treats are and, of course, if they served as inspiration on the chefs' menus, now that these guys and gals are all grown up.
