The route from there to their Medzo Gelato Bar was circuitous and then some, with stops in Dubai, Los Angeles, Italy, Philadelphia, Bainbridge Island, West Seattle and more. Ultimately, they wanted to make gelato “from scratch, without any base mix — really pure, authentic gelato,” according to Jennifer.
