WHAT/WHO IS KENNY LOVER?
Kenny Lover is a chefs approach to ice-cream without the fuss
Kenny Lover is an Australiana themed ice-creamery with a heavy focus on sourcing fresh Australian ingredients as well as demonstrating unique / inventive flavour combinations. We want to push the boundaries with our ice-cream flavours although totally understand that some people just want pistachio!
So we have some cracking classics too!
We think that tasting something for the first time is an incredible experience, and one that becomes more rare as we get older. We want to bring new flavours / combinations to people who think they have seen (or tasted) it all!
We make all of our ice-cream fresh everyday, on site at our shop in Thornbury, Melbourne. We scoop 12-16 flavours daily, with a balanced mix of classic flavours, variations on common flavour combinations and a few wacky ones as well! Kenny Lover has a strong presence of vegan ice-creams and sorbets as well, to make sure no one misses out!
THE PEEPS BEHIND THE CREAM
It's what's on the inside that counts
Behind Kenny Lover are the people from some of Melbourne's favourite bars / restaurants.
Mikey Baker and Dan Mason from Henry Sugar, and Tommy Peasnell from Dexter, Peaches, Takeaway Pizza and CHEEK joined by creative Maria Angelico helping with the design the style of the shop!
Mikey Baker is our resident ice-cream nerd! Having honed his craft at 2 Michelin starred restaurant Alkimia (ESP) as well of 3 Michelin starred El Celler de Can Roca (ESP) *named worlds best restaurant 3 times over!
Working alongside world famous pastry chef 'Jordi Roca' is where Mikey's ice-cream obsession began. In recent years he has opened Spanish / Australian restaurant Henry Sugar in Carlton with Dan Mason, where he has refined his craft and has been introduced to native Australian flavours.
Kenny Lover is the culmination of Mikey's extensive experience and creativity, coupled with a few hospitality pros making sure he doesn't get too out of control!
We all love this industry, and are so proud of Kenny Lover. We hope you love it as much as we do!
