About Coolhaus Austin
A Coolhaus is many things. It is an architecturally inspired ice cream sandwich. The Coolhaus consists of all-natural handmade ice creams of classic and seasonal varieties or custom-made to suit your needs, packed between two cookies of your choice. The Coolhaus is set in your hands in an edible wrapper custom-printed upon with edible ink to commemorate a place, person or event.
A Coolhaus is also an ice cream sandwich food truck; a converted postal van with chrome rims (or Rem's), a pink top, and a fold-down bar and table. The Coolhaus truck is happily driven by architects, designers, developers, artists, bakers, actors, writers, musicians and people from other walks of life.
A Coolhaus is also a thinker, a thinker about reclaiming public and urban space for eating and gathering, when and where it is least expected, or when it is invited to share its decadent treats with interested eaters. A Coolhaus is an innovator about how to reinvent or redesign food with epicurian sensibility but also with a search for sustainability and minimal waste. A Coolhaus is passionate about food, where it comes from, how it is made, and how it is given to the eater. A Coolhaus has a curiosity for the day-to-day gastro-experience and a devotion to the public for social merriment.
"You can’t build a house without a blueprint and you can’t build a food truck without a great idea. Natasha and Freya are the famous founders of “farchitecture” (food + architecture). All of their ice cream sandwiches are designed to resemble a deconstructed house: a cookie roof and floor slab with ice cream walls. It may sound a little farfetched, but anything goes when the food is this good." To read more about Coolhaus, check out our blog here:
