If there is a science to ice cream, Marcus Purtzki has mastered it.
After earning his bachelor's degree in food science and nutrition at UBC, Marcus worked in restaurants in Vancouver and New York before deciding to focus on pastry - and macarons in particular.
When Marcus and his wife Melanya moved to Calgary in 2012, they bought a small gelato machine and made pints to sell in JBFC and FARM. Marcus' rich, dense, small-batch ice cream quickly became a hit among Calgarians.
"People just wanted the ice cream," he said.
