Flavors can carry you to another place. They can help conjure memories of somewhere you have been or inspire you to travel somewhere. For example, the taste of vanilla can transport you to Tahiti or Mexico, lavender may take you to the south of France and sticky rice with mango is equated with Southeast Asia. At Wanderlust Creamery in Tarzana, California, memories or dreams come to life through ice cream. Every flavor tells a story of where the owners have been or where they want to go, and they aim to take customers on that journey.

Wanderlust Creamery is the creation of Adrienne Nicole Borlongan and her partner, JP Lopez. After studying food science at Cal State University Northridge, Adrienne, 30, aspired to work in Research and Development in food manufacturing. After an internship with The Cheesecake Factory, she realized she wanted more creative freedom. She went to work at restaurants and has been bartending for SBE Hospitality for the past few years. While Adrienne played with ingredients as a bartender, she also liked to play with flavors in her home kitchen on her free time. She began making macarons as gifts for her friends, playing with unique flavors.
