Cooking with Rocco & Tam: Ice cream without ice cream maker

In the second edition of 'Cooking with Rocco & Tam,' a recipe for making ice cream without an ice cream maker.

Action News viewers know about Tam, but who is her husband Rocco?

Rocco Lugrine is known for his delicious work: maybe you tried his pastry, ice cream or confections at famed spots Le Bec Fin, Brasserie Perrier or Miel Patisserie. These days he works as one of the chefs for Barry-Callebaut, the world's largest chocolate company. We also like it when he sends treats into Action News!
