The founder and head creamstress of Paradise City Creamery in Las Vegas, Nevada, Valerie Stunning joins today's episode of The Good Fork.

Valerie Stunning, always knew in addition to her fascination with crafting decadent plant-based ice cream, the real magic she’d bring to Vegas’ scoop scene was raw inspiration born from a love & respect of her previous glittering neon worlds* where she celebrated indulgence on international stages for nearly a decade. Naked.

Though for Valerie, celebrating indulgence is more than a euphemism or hashtag.

It is a reckoning that the act of consciously indulging in what we find pleasurable can be transformative in spite of societal judgment.

It is through her passion for creating bold flavor profiles and facilitating inclusive experiences, she aims for Paradise City Creamery to be the pleasure she wishes to see in the world. And, let me tell you, it is. 

If you're listening to this in the summer, she's just launched new, luscious flavors you can pick-up from 5 - 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays at Garagiste Wine Room in the Las Vegas Arts District.

What I love most about Valerie is her openness and honesty and her standing up for sex workers and helping to normalize the conversation. We're talking about ice cream, stripping and her advocacy in this episode.
