The explosion in Sacramento's food scene continues to amaze and delight. During my March visit to the Capitol, I dashed across the street to check out Cornflower Creamery, six months young at that time. The farm-to-scoop ice cream shop was inspired by the craft ice creameries in Portland and San Francisco.

I sampled a few of the more exotic offerings --- Baklava, Sichuan apricot, Lemon olive oil, Anise --- then settled on Mayan chocolate, deep and rich chocolateyness with warm spices. And ordered it in an affogato, $5.75, for a winning combination. The espresso was from local roaster, Vaneli's in Rocklin, a name to remember.
