Call her the ice cream mogul or the dairy queen, but Jeni Britton Bauer, founder of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, is the woman behind America’s obsession with better ice cream and has been for two decades.
We’re talking ice cream made from grass-pastured cows with smooth texture and buttercream body and inventive flavors ranging from brambleberry crisp to buttermilk and churro. Plus did you know, she kickstarted the salty caramel ice cream trend? Pure genius…
Join us in conversation with Jeni to celebrate Jeni’s first DC shop on 14th St NW, which is location #32 in her ice cream empire. Holley Simmons, Washington Post contributor and co-founder of The Lemon Collective and Sill Life, will interview Jeni IRL to uncover her ice cream journey--from art school dropout and former perfumer to the visionary food leader we #pinefor today.
Come socialize and enjoy scoops from Jeni’s Ice Cream Truck, which will be parked at Union Market exclusively for pineapple!
