Tomorrow, Aug. 22, local purveyors of frozen treats square off in the parking lot adjacent to Grand in Union Square. "Our goal is to prove Boston's status as an 'Ice Cream City' by showcasing the area's best ice cream and frozen dessert makers and we want you there eating it all up," says the Facebook page for the event.


For a $2 donation, you get to taste the goods from Christina's, Toscanini's, Wheeler's (vegan!), and more. The event runs from 3-6 p.m. at 374 Somerville Ave., Somerville. The rain date is Sunday, Aug. 23. Donations benefit the Juniper Fund, a scholarship established in memory of musician John Hall of the Addison Groove Project.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
