Proper Ice Cream on the menu at Buc­can

Restau­rant cen­tral to suc­cess of all-nat­u­ral, scratch-made del­i­cacy.

Palm Beach Daily News - - TODAY - By M.M. CLOUTIER

Sa­vory dishes at Buc­can — from squid orec­chi­ette to spicy pork taquitos — aren’t nec­es­sar­ily proper in the but­toned-up sense, but how about the ice cream at Buc­can?

It’s uber-cre­ative, too, but def­i­nitely proper — as in Proper.

Buc­can, 350 S. County Road, serves Proper Ice Cream, the made-from­scratch ice cream cre­ated by an area lawyer whose first ice cream shop re­cently opened in Del­ray Beach.

Buc­can has been a cham­pion of Proper Ice Cream since its culi­nary team taste-tested var­i­ous fla­vors about a year ago, said Buc­can ex­ec­u­tive chef and co-owner Clay Con­ley.

“We were blown away,” Con­ley said. “The rest is his­tory, as they say.”

Proper Ice Cream owner Rick Fel­ber­baum prac­ticed law for many years be­fore de­vot­ing his en­er­gies to his pas­sion: cre­at­ing ice cream made en­tirely from nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents.

Af­ter pro­gress­ing in his en­deavor, Fel­ber­baum in­tro­duced him­self — and his ice creams — to Con­ley.

“He came (about a year ago) and worked with his ice cream ma­chine at Buc­can for about six months, mak­ing ice creams and de­vel­op­ing fla­vors,” Con­ley said. “I couldn’t be hap­pier for him now.”

Fel­ber­baum, now poised to open a sec­ond ice cream shop, re­cently called Con­ley his “sin­gle most im­por­tant sup­porter. I al­ways knew that if Clay loved my ice cream, I could re­ally do this.”

Proper fla­vors in­clude the clas­sics choco­late, vanilla and straw­berry, but the ones that put the brand on the map in­clude blue­berry muf­fin, sweet cream and peach, but­ter­scotch with brown­ies, and fresh gin­ger, to name a few.

Ve­gan fla­vors, which Buc­can also cham­pi­ons, are avail­able, too.

On a re­cent Wed­nes­day night at Buc­can, avail­able Proper fla­vors in­cluded cof­fee, rocky road, peaches and cream, ba­nana pound cake, peanut but­ter and jelly, and choco­late egg cream.

Proper Ice Cream also is served, among other area restau­rants, at Buc­can’s sis­ter eater­ies Imoto, also at 350 S. County Road, and Grato, at 1901 S. Dixie High­way in West Palm Beach.

Proper’s fla­vors go well beyond clas­sic choco­late, vanilla and straw­berry, and in­clude ve­gan fla­vors.
