CEO/Creator of Jenis Splendid Ice creams
Jeni has been making ice creams professionally for two decades. Before that, she studied art, worked in a bakery, and had a serious hobby blending perfumes and collecting essential oils. Jeni founded Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in 2002.
Her ahead-of-the-trend vision using whole ingredients and dairy from grass-pastured cows, rather than synthetic flavorings and commodity ice cream mix 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.
