We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica La Forge and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jessica, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Several factors figure into the success of any business, brand, or quest of personal satisfaction. Hard work and a strong ability to persevere are key. You also have to take time and patience to build a good team that supports and executes your visions. As the founder and creator of God Save the Cream, Denver, I had to decide whether I wanted to be a chef or a manufacture. I choose both. To stay excited to create and explore new flavors and craft a product that appeals to mass consumption. As the result God Save the Cream handcrafts artisanal small batch superior ice cream, gelato, popsicles and frozen novelties to some of Colorado’s most exclusive establishments.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
The majority of careers passionate people pursue have road blocks. The most important thing is to stay true to your vision and not let one bad day or one wrong turn dissuade you from continuing on your path. Professional Chefs are a special breed of folks. I graduated from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY and have dedicated my entire adult life to the craft of ice cream, gelato and frozen novelties. God Save the Cream started churning handcrafted small batched ice cream seven years ago. Our focus is to creating unique, one-of-a-kind experiences. The flavors are chef-driven and are constantly changing and evolving….using only the freshest and most superior of ingredients.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If I had a best friend visiting Denver I would take them to The Denver Zoo fallowed by a dinner at Joy Hill Pizza’s rooftop
