As part of Cooking Channel's first birthday celebration, they've sent a frozen treat truck around the country giving away free stuff and promoting network personalities.
Next up is Chicago.
Kelsey Nixon, host of "Kelsey's Essentials," will be at the local stop on Saturday handing out free espresso and gelato from the LaVazza at French market (131 N. Clinton, Chicago). She and the truck will be there from 10 to 4.
The only quibble we've got is this: They've been partnering with local vendors along the way, dispensing Honey Hut ice cream in Cleveland and Hudsonville ice cream in Detroit. LaVazza's Expression shop is Italian to the core. Yeah, yeah, their only U.S. locations are in Chicago, but still, no Black Dog?
Still, free is free. And Skilling says it will be hot again, so free + cold = good.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
