Who We Are
I'm Jen, the owner and chief gelato maker at Bucket & Bay. Working with my husband, Boris, we have committed to creating a unique product, using the best ingredients possible - a product we love, a product we would love to serve our friends and family.
Why do we do this? Because, like many of you, I want my kids to look up to us and be proud that we have followed our dreams. I am also passionate about instilling in them a healthy relationship with food. To care where it comes from. To appreciate new flavors. To be inquisitive.
You will note the Same passion in our open kitchen at Bucket & Bay, where we handcraft all our gelato right before your eyes.
As a little girl, I got excited every time I saw that wooden bucket sitting in the middle of my grandparents' garage. There, my grandfather, who was a butcher and cabinet builder by trade, was churning THE BEST vanilla ice cream I remember from my childhood. And it is the inspiration behind my own small batch, handcrafted gelato! I hope you will have a chance to try it very soon, right here on BAY Street.
The Gelato . . .
We are churning gelato from scratch, right in the middle of our wide open kitchen - so you can experience the alchemy!
I'll be using only the finest, responsibly sourced ingredients - think grass-fed cows, farmers market produce, and fair trade chocolate.
