UVA Club of Charlottesville: Taste & Talk with Splendora’s Gelato

PK Ross (CLAS ’05), owner of Splendora’s Gelato, a favorite Charlottesville small business, joined us for a virtual gelato taste test on Tuesday, May 12th. In the virtual tasting, PK gave participants lots of interesting details behind the creation of gelato. Bringing to bear her undergraduate degree in biology, she shared her very scientific process for developing new flavor combinations and admitted that after seven years, she is still searching for the perfect salt for her very popular salted caramel! We enjoyed this interesting behind-the-scenes look at everything that goes into making one of our favorite frozen desserts.
