The Eastern Europe I know from childhood is very different than the one we see in the news today. I fondly remember growing up in a lively St. Petersburg, full of vibrant culture and some of the friendliest and warmest people in the world. During my years there, I traveled to many different regions of the country. I have many fond memories of visiting my relatives in Ukraine, where my family originally comes from. I've spent many summer vacations in Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, and on the Sea of Azov, and got to eat plenty of ice cream during that time.
I've also been able to travel and experience Scandinavia, Germany, Italy, Poland, and many other countries and regions. Those memories of touring and tasting the different European foods have significantly impacted who I am today.
After moving to LA, it was impossible to find an ice cream with the quality, taste and European flavors that I grew up with. What began as a small obsession of mine to revive the taste that remained in my mind and heart continued to grow until I decided to make it my mission to bring European-inspired ice cream to an American audience. Following traditional techniques and quality standards passed down over generations, I brought my memories back to life. I called it Moloko (Молоко) - Ukrainian/Russian for milk, ice cream's essential ingredient.
As we grow, we are guided by the belief that quality is as important as taste when it comes to what we put in our bodies. Our Eastern European-heritage-inspired flavors are always made from high-quality ingredients and lovingly crafted for taste, texture, and tradition.
