Every Wednesday at noon, Food section staff members and guests answer your cooking questions. You can submit a question in advance in the box below. Just remember to return when we’re live, or read the transcript after the chat ends.

This week, we plan to discuss the best treat of summer: ice cream. We’ve got guests: chef and ice-cream maker extraordinaire chef Krista Kern Desjarlais who shared recipes for Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (pictured), Watermelon-Lime Sorbet and Chocolate Shell Ice Cream Topping, and writer Kathy Gunst who wrote a profile on Desjarlais and her ice cream shop, Bresca and the Honeybee in Maine.

So, let’s talk ice cream! Ask us about sugar to milk ratios, about all the add-ins you can dream of and share your favorite ice cream tips and tricks. As always, we’re here to answer any other cooking questions you also have, too.
