Jeni Britten Bauer has been making ice creams professionally for two decades. The first Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams opened in 2002. Her ahead-of-the-trend vision—using whole ingredients and dairy from grass-pastured cows—coupled with inspired flavors sparked the artisan ice cream movement more than a decade before it would become a top food trend. Jeni is a James Beard Award-winning author of two cookbooks and has been recognized by Fast Company as one of the most creative people in business.
