Over the last month, I’ve spent a week in and around South Bend, Indiana. While I hadn’t found a lot of great culinary destinations, I did find two places my first visit that were both good, Fiddler’s Hearth (fish wrapped in newspaper), and Bare Hands Brewery (a great brewpub). But I was still searching for some other great places to eat, and while I kept finding some places that were good, most of them weren’t really anything to write about. For example, Hacienda didn’t exactly excite me with their Tex-Mex menu, but the beer I had there, a Lucky Dog from Evil Czech Brewing, was quite good, so I decided to look up where else I could find it.
Turns out that the folks that own Evil Czech also own a restaurant in Mishawaka, called Corndance Tavern, so I decided to give it a try (their web site looked interesting, and they had some pretty interesting beer specials). With my coworker Cal in tow, we decided to drive over to Mishawaka and check it out.

All of our gelato is house-made with Liquid Nitrogen.
Why Liquid Nitrogen? There is a truckload of science behind it. But first, you need to understand gelato, it is a cross breed of art and science creating a microstructure of ice crystals, air bubbles, fat droplets and a viscous solutions of sugars, polysaccharides and milk proteins. It involves physical chemistry, food science, colloid science, chemical engineering, microscopy, materials science and ultimately consumer science. The use of liquid nitrogen plays on the strength of a phenomenon called nucleation-dominated ice crystallisation, it forms a large number of microscopic ice crystals in seconds, resulting in exceptionally smooth textures.
Is Liquid nitrogen safe? Yes. Nitrogen is non-toxic, non-flammable and it constitutes 78.09% of the earth’s atmosphere. Liquid nitrogen boils off when it comes in contact with anything warmer than itself (the boiling point of liquid nitrogen is -196C), we guarantee its completely evaporated by the time its in your cup. Your safety is our priority and we do have rigorous safety procedures and training in place to keep everyone safe.
