Some Central Coast businesses were featured in a recent episode of "Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party" on VH-1.
Doc Burnstein’s and SLO Baked Bakery worked together to create a 300-pound ice cream sandwich for the popular show. They used 60 gallons of vanilla ice cream and 50 pounds of cake to make the sandwich. It was enough to feed the entire studio audience, as well as everyone working at CBS Studios in Burbank on the day of taping.
The episode was filmed in May of 2017, but didn’t air until Wednesday. The businesses weren’t allowed to tell anyone they had been featured on the show until the episode aired.
Greg Steinberger, the Doc Burnstein’s founder, says Martha Stewart couldn’t put her ice cream down after taping was finished. He says both Martha and Snoop are invited to be celebrity scoopers at Doc’s parlors if they’re interested.
Doc Burnstein’s has locations in Santa Maria, Arroyo Grande, and San Luis Obispo. SLO Baked is in San Luis Obispo.
