Can't say it really comes as a surprise -- these hard-working ladies have earned the honors with homemade ice cream and sorbet in delicious and unusual flavors like Earl Grey tea, Roquefort blue cheese with medjool dates (it's called the "Cheese Course Duo" -- clever!), mango lassi, and basil lime, as well as a rotating variety of seasonal tastes. Not to mention, they've branched out beyond their Shea Boulevard digs, taking ice cream to the masses at local farmers markets (you can follow them on Twitter, too).

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
