The recipe for this decadent treat comes to us from Peter’s mother. Growing up there were always two important ingredients in the house: bananas and vanilla ice cream.
We hope that this Pioppo family favorite recipe will become one of yours, give it a try next time someone asks, “What’s for dessert?”
A note for parents or those who wish to avoid alcohol:
While most of the alcohol should burn off, there will be a bit left in the final product. It’s not much, but if ...

Here’s another recipe from our dear friend and chef, Peter Klein. We’ve shared more wonderful meals with Peter K. over the years than we can count.

Who loves a fresh Margarita? Everyone at the Studio! This is our go to recipe cocktail after a long hot day on the set. He learned a variant of this recipe from his good friend Mr. Springman.

Its wholesome, features whole grains and fresh fruit and even yogurt! We guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Farmer’s Market Gin & Tonic
Gin and tonics are well and good but we don’t usually reach for one here at the studio unless its this one. After one, typically everyone wants a second. After the third, things start to get messy. We had a drink similar to this years ago at one of our favorite Pizzeria’s, Franny’s in Brooklyn, and we’ve been drinking them ever since.
Lastly, if you haven't tried using an upscale tonic like Q Tonic or artisanal gin like DH Krahn's - to make your gin and tonics.... treat yourself ...
