Fany Gerson grew up in Mexico and always wanted to share her home country's tastes with Americans.

She started out with a cart serving paletas and finally opened La Newyorkina, an ice cream shop in New York City's West Village. The restauranteur recently introduced chapulines (grasshoppers) as a topping for its sweet treats.

I recently visited La Newyorkina to speak with Gerson about this addition to the menu, and of course, try it myself.
