Brigitta Balogh left her hometown of Szentes in the south-eastern part Hungary when she was 25 years old. She now lives in San Diego, California where she works three jobs, including one where she makes gelato by hand. One of her unique flavors: beer gelato.
She trained as a pastry chef in Hungary, and then went to work in restaurants in Qatar, Austria, Italy, and London. There, she enrolled herself in an intensive language program to learn English. She’s the first and only person in her family to move to the U.S.
