Jeni Britton Bauer
CHERRY BOMBE 100:
For Cherry Bombe’s #CBscoop issue, we queried more than a dozen women on the craft ice cream scene and almost all cited Jeni Britton Bauer as a source of inspiration. Women across the industry and beyond admire Jeni’s artistry, passion, and ability to handle adversity with grace. Her two cookbooks, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts are frequently cited as the source of the Bombesquad’s ice cream-making obsession. And the brand loyalty she’s achieved? It’s the stuff business owners dream about. Jeni has been making ice cream professionally for two decades and founded Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in 2002. Her use of whole ingredients, dairy from grass-pastured cows, and creative flavors sparked the artisan ice cream movement we know and love today.
