A classic summer dessert is being reinvented and refreshed at Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches, a brand new specialty dessert producer here in Richmond.
Nightingale is a Richmond based small business operating from the kitchen of Greenleaf's Pool Room, a downtown bar & restaurant where the co-owner of Nightingale, Hannah Pollack (seen below), is Executive Chef.
"It started here in Greenleaf we wanted to do an old school dessert, that's kind what we do here it's old school things updated. Then we started selling them at the farmer's market and people really seemed liked them so it just kind of took off," said Pollack.
Pollack has been working at Greenleaf's since it opened and considers their kitchen to be her home, and the owners to be her family. She named her business after the Oriental Nightingale, a famous pool player and wife of Ralph Greenleaf, for whom Greenleaf's is named.
