SAM MASON
ODD FELLOWS ICE CREAM CO. & EMPIRE MAYONNAISE CO.
Building on the success of his artisanal mayo company (Empire Mayonnaise Co.), critically acclaimed chef Sam Mason launched Odd Fellows Ice Cream Co. to reimagine ice cream with unique flavors and formulations. With flavors such as caramelized onion, chorizo caramel and extra virgin olive oil, creativity and innovation is the name of the game at Mason’s New York–based shops. “We don’t compromise by buying a pre-made base; we make everything in-house using only the finest ingredients,” he says. “People definitely notice the difference.”
