#58: PJK's Creamery – A Flavorful, Fresh Take On Ice Cream Rolls Into Town


Here are some fun facts about ice cream.

  1. It is delicious
  2. Utah is one of the top 10 ice cream consuming states in the country
  3. No matter the time of year, ice cream is always the right decision

With these strong supporting arguments for ice cream, it was only a matter of time before someone changed the ice cream game in Utah. That time has arrived.

This week on The Utah Foodie we sit down with Peter Korth, the founder of PJK Creamery, your new favorite ice cream supplier. With 16 playful flavors and seasonal flavors appearing monthly, Peter has accomplished something that many in Utah have not: he’s made ice cream an experience.

Peter is an acclaimed Pastry Chef with over 10 years of experience in the Utah and LA food scene. Known for his award-winning work at Frida Bistro, Peter dreamed of bringing his unique ice cream stylings to his beloved home state. And this summer he made his grand debut. And if the lines at the Downtown Farmer’s Market are any indication, he’s hit the nail on the head.

Join us as we hear Peter’s incredible story, and dive into the impressive and creative pastry scene that is truly under-appreciated throughout Utah.
