From the 'Burg to Your Kitchen


August 22, 2019

As with the Williamsburg Community Farm Show, one of the most popular items there is the food.

Taking part in all the delicious fair food is one of the highlights of the farm show, especially for me.

I decided to give out two fair-inspired recipes that can delight you even when it’s not farm show week.

Fried Ice Cream


1 quart vanilla ice cream

3 egg whites

3 cups crushed Cornflakes cereal

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 quarts oil for frying


Scoop ice cream into 8 1/2-inch balls and place on baking sheet; freeze until firm. In a shallow dish, combine Cornflakes and cinnamon, in another dish, beat egg whites until foamy. Roll ice cream balls in egg whites and then cornflake mixture covering completely. Freeze for 3 hours.

In a large deep fryer or heavy saucepan, heat oil to 375 degrees. Drop ice cream balls 1-2 at a time for 10-15 seconds until golden. Serve immediately.



1 cup water

1 cup flour

2-1/2 Tbsp. sugar

2 quarts oil for frying

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup white sugar, to taste

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil


In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine water, 2-1/2 Tbsp. sugar, salt and 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball. Heat oil to 375 degrees.

Pipe strips of dough into hot oil using a pastry bag. Fry until golden. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll drained churros in mixture.
