008 – P.K. Ross, Splendora’s Gelato
In this episode, meet a woman with a degree in Biology (with a concentration in Molecular Genomics!) who bought a gelato store. Splendora’s Gelato ain’t ice cream. Nor is it frozen yogurt. No dump and mix here. No ice cream dasher which adds air. Gelato is a fantabulously rich, thick, decadent frozen concoction from Italy which makes all the rest look like amateurs.
An awesome conversation touching on subjects like the concept of FOMO as it relates to gelato. What’s FOMO? Look it up. I had to LOL! We also discussed savory gelatos, how owner P.K. Ross creates her unique flavors, what challenges are faced by women-owned businesses today, and beer. Learn the story of the day she signed the papers for Splendora’s. It’s a great one. Is a good palate something you’re born with? Or can it be developed? What’s her most popular flavor? What region of Italy is on her bucket list to travel to someday? Are there some ingredients that just don’t work in gelato because of its cold nature? Who gave her the idea for her popular goat cheese, honey, and fig gelato? Her most surprisingly popular flavor? Listen now to find out!
