neighborhood Ice cream. That’s what the translation is! Celebrating a year in business.
The neighborhood of Schoenberg in Berlin Germany. All the other ic shops are shuttered for winter break.
Worth a trip to Berlin.
You might have seen my recent post about the unique and delicious Lebkuchen IceCream.
Meet Herr Gunnar Bruckner. Owner and creator of all the wonderfully flavorful ice cream. I asked if he would be in my People at Work Series and he graciously agreed. After twenty five years in United Nations and International Affairs Work, he has found his home. And close to home. Right in the neighborhood.
He showed me how he mixes the ice cream and has several freezers with different temperatures.
Using the finest ingredients from trusted sources is key to success. Saffron threads. German Mustard Seed Pickles, and Vanilla beans which he scrapes out the interior. He’s made cilantro ice cream and I had the fresh plum. There was grapefruit and elderberry and mango, too. I asked if there were any flavors which didn’t work out and he told me about a goat cheese one with way too much goat cheese- a tiny dollop okay for a small canapé but not acceptable to sell as ice cream. An expensive experiment but people enjoy the German mustard seeds/ pickles ice cream.
Did I mention he can make a fancy coffee or espresso for you, too?
Scooping out small scoops so the chocolate shake I ordered for my DIL will mix perfectly.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post featuring Dagmar Bruckner, glass bead Artist with a shop and gallery just around the corner.
She created this glass pin for her husband’s lapel. A good conversation starter.
Such a wonderful topic. I am happy you did all the extra research- venturing back to his shop !
Oh wow! Yummy!
I just love this! You find these wonderful people displaying their wares! Yum!

How can you not love homemade ice cream. He and his wife look so happy. I have so much respect for people who make life changes to follow their dreams. I am reminded of this quote by Thoreau:
“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”
Maybe I will learn to fly yet
Its so nice to see someone pursue what he loves. PS – I love ice cream!
