The ultimate culinary talents in artisan flavor are joining forces — King Adam Fleishman (Umami, Umamicatessen, Red Medicine, 800 Degrees) unites with Brad Saltzmanand Stephen Bikoff of the two-year-old, Chatsworth based LA Creamery in what is sure to be a sweet and savory frozen explosion.
Fleischman has signed on as a partner to create some even more incredibly wacky-licious flavors, including Porc Phat ( made with Spanish Iberico lardo, Asian pears, hazelnuts and pure mint gel). Other flavors include Moonshine and Caramel Corn; Absinthe (yep, it’s the real spirit and created for an adult root beer float that just debuted at Umami Burger Anaheim ); and Mezcal, the real stuff mixed with orange liqueur.
“Brad and I are beyond excited to have a creative visionary and business leader, such as Adam Fleischman as a new owner and partner in L.A. Creamery,” said Bikoff. “We have been selling artisan ice cream to Adam’s company for quite some time now, and from the beginning, we realized the amazing synergy between Adam’s vision for the food industry, and the L.A. Creamery brand, as a modern artisan ice cream company. Primarily, Adam, Brad, and I are going to work together to grow L.A. Creamery as a company that distributes our products throughout the United States.”
LA Creamery is served at most Umami restaurants, as well as Farm Shop, Tar and Roses, Joan’s on Third on the Westside, and Toluca Lake’s Olive and Thyme, among others. Can’t get there? You can order pints of Adam’s special picks for delivery. Note that there are six pints to an order for $70-90. And if you really want to splurge futher, just order your own custom made flavor (with labels), starting at $600 for six pints. Tell your friends, they ship nationwide!
