In an authentic gelato creamery, you never know what new flavor is swirling in this artisan’s mind.
Jessica “Jessie” Oloroso has always had a knack for inventing sweet concoctions. As the pastry chef for one of Chicago’s trendiest restaurants, Scylla, Jessie spent the formative years of her career crafting one of the city’s most impressive dessert menus. Yet ever since she was a little girl, Jessie held a passion for the gourmet flavors and textures of Italian gelato and sorbets. So in 2010, she stepped away from the restaurant scene and followed her true love, opening the first original scoop shop in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village.
