The warm aroma of freshly baked waffle cones envelops every nook and cranny of Marble Slab Creamery, revving up guests? senses with the promise of impending decadence. As the hand-rolled cones tan in their ovens, the store?s staff bustles about the premises whipping up fresh batches of super-premium ice cream in the on-site creamery and helping patrons select flavours from a list of more than 50 options. This chef-driven dedication to gourmet ice cream began in 1983 with the company?s founding in Houston, Texas, when two French chefs were enlisted to create a recipe for Marble Slab Creamery?s signature sweet-cream ice cream using their culinary expertise. Today, staffers utilize the frozen-slab technique of ice-cream architecture, scooping each customer?s choice of ice cream and mixins onto a chilled marble slab to mix the separate elements into one customized m?lange. Though specializing in cone-based ice-cream treats, Marble Slab Creamery also offers a menu full of other scream-worthy confections, including cakes, shakes, and ice-cream cupcakes.
