Several Fresno City College culinary arts students will soon have their ice cream flavors featured at Ampersand Ice Cream for sale to the public, according to Kathy Bonilla, FCC’s public information officer.

For the third year in a row, the owners of Ampersand judged the student-created ice cream in Chef Jonathan Davey’s advanced food preparation class.

The finalists were Mojito Sorbet, made by Cherish Clark; Cherry Bomb, made by Angelina Bonilla; Caramel Corn, made by Magdiel Rivera-Dominguez; and After Cereal Milk, made by Nicholas Rivas.

All four will be sold at Ampersand on April 28 and 29, and the top-selling flavor will be featured as the flavor of the month beginning May 3, Bonilla said.

Judging took place on April 17 in the Art Home Economics Building, room 110. Students made the ice cream using an ice cream maker gifted to the program by Ampersand, Bonilla said.

Ampersand Ice Cream is located at 1940 N. Echo Avenue.
