Here at LAist, we emphatically scream for ice cream. Especially ice cream with a farmers market bent, like Carmela. The Pasadena-based creamery made it into our Best Ice Creams in L.A. list, and once you taste their unique flavors like Earl Grey and blueberry thyme sorbet, you'll see why. If you're curious as to how they work their frozen magic, they'll be teaching ice cream making classes throughout the rest of the summer. Think of it as summer camp for your sweet tooth.

The folks from Carmela will discuss flavor inspiration, utilizing local farmers market produce, and pairing ideas -- with tastings of their flavors, of course. The strawberry buttermilk ice cream and seasonal favorite watermelon mint sorbet, both of which were featured in our KTLA crazy ice cream segment, are the flavors that will be taught at the class.

The classes will take place on August 11, August 25, and September 8 from 9:30 a.m.- noon. The fee is $100 per student, which includes 2 pints, which are normally $18 each. To reserve your space, email
