    fast facts name : jake perkinshometown : truckee, caage : 26favorite split flavor : peanut butter and grapedream split flavor : macadamia butter and blackberryhow do you split? :preferably coasting at 20mph, no hands on the handlebars, split straight to the face. will also mix into overnight oats made with oats, almond milk, chia seeds, and a pinch of salt.   what do you do for work? i help companies succeed - by defining what success looks like, creating a path to get there, and measuring success on the road to winning. what do you do for fun? i love to ride bicycles - the cycling community is phenomenal and has entrenched itself as a major cornerstone of my life. do your "worlds" ever cross over? yes, 100% - cycling can be quite senseless without clear goals, as can business. but when you step back and assess what winning looks like (keeping up with someone twice as fast or increasing sales x amount), you can begin to lay out the strategy that will get you there. why and how do you use split in each of your "personalities"? split helps get me out of bed – literally. before a 2 hour early morning training ride, i eat a split while still under the covers - it gives me the kick required to get my motor going. and when i’m starting to lose focus at the end of the workday, i’ll grab a split to help get me through that gray zone between lunch and dinner. what is your biggest passion – what excites you and motivates you? community. i love being a part of them and i love thinking about how we as humans thrive within so many different types of communities for so many different reasons. how do you make your community better? by being an active and dependable member of my community. in order for a community to flourish, those involved must engage and inspire others, and together, the community will grow bigger and stronger.

    The "Split" Sundae: A Summer Classic

    "the ice cream sundae". just saying the words instantly teleports us to the end of a long summer's day – are you sitting at the sand's edge on a beach boardwalk? maybe perched at the counter in an old-fashioned diner? or in the backyard, enjoying a homemade sundae with your pals? the sundae is an iconic summer treat, and a positively american one at that (take a hike, apple pie). but from the hot fudge sundae, to the banana split, it's time for a new twist on this classic – enter the "split" sundae, featuring our new whole foods exclusive flavor, cashew + sour cherry split. a special thank you to our friends at three twins ice cream for providing the key ingredient, and to whole foods for carrying every ingredient you need! equipment: 1 ice cream scoop 1 sundae glass 2 mixing bowls cherry pitter small knife spoons!   ingredients: 3 scoops of three twins vanilla ice cream 1 jar of santa cruz organic hot fudge 2 packs of cashew & sour cherry split 1 bag of shredded and toasted coconut 1 cup cherries, pitted and halved ½ cup dark chocolate, chopped   ½ cup cashews, chopped     prep: thoroughly mix chopped chocolate, coconut, and cashews in a bowl. pour hot fudge into a second bowl. knead the split packs. wash, pit, and halve the cherries. process: drizzle one pack of split to coat the inside of the glass. (start from the bottom and swirl upwards). dip the rim of the glass into the bowl of fudge, then remove and allow to drip-dry for about 20 seconds. dip the fudge-coated rim into the coconut-chocolate-cashew mixture to solidify the coating. place a spoonful of fudge into the base of the cup. place 2 spoonfuls of the coconut-chocolate-cashew mix on top of the chocolate, followed by a couple cherry halves. add a single scoop of ice cream on top of the cherries and nut mix. repeat steps 5 and 6 twice, until there are 3 scoops of ice cream in the sundae glass. finally, on the uppermost scoop of ice cream, use a spoon to make a small dent or well on top. run the spoon under warm water to make this a bit easier! squeeze the second pack of split into the dent, and top it off with any remaining cherry halves. enjoy! the history of the sundae: a birthplace contested.  like many traditional american creations, the origins of the ice cream sundae is unclear and hotly contested. and we say hotly contested, we mean it – two rivers, wisconsin and ithaca, new york are in a "cold war" of sorts, while evanston, illinois claims the name of "sundae" as its own. back in the day, soda (or pop, cola, soft drink, whatever you might call it) consisted of two parts: soda water as the base, and soda syrup as the sweetener. in 1881, wisconsin's ed berners heard a special request to make an ice cream float, minus the soda water. the result was a bowl of ice cream, drizzled with chocolate syrup. unheard of, but delicious. platt & colt's shop in ithaca made the same discovery a decade later, but with cherry syrup and candied cherries on top. the difference? ithaca has proof: ithaca daily journal, april 5, 1892 all the while, the town of evanston had decided that the consumption of soda beverages during the sabbath was a sinful habit, and opted to ban the sale of soda water on sundays. local shops spotted a loophole to keep business booming – keep syrup on the menu, but replace the soda water with another base… why not ice cream? to avoid offending the local ministry, they dubbed the sunday-only treat "ice cream sundae". wherever the dish was born, it boomed in the early 20th century – becoming a go-to american dessert that was cool, decadent, affordable, and perfect for sharing with your sweetheart.   oh, fudge. as the sundae spread across the states, regional variations began cropping up. unique toppings, varying bases, and sauces of all kinds were added to the basic foundation. hot fudge became an iconic variation, having been perfected in cc brown's parlor in hollywood, california in 1906. brown served his sundae in a flute, which allowed the freshly-molten fudge to run down the sides of the glass and make its way into every bite. it's your turn!  the ice cream sundae, with its conflicting origin stories and countless regional recipes, is authentically american, if nothing else – born from pure curiosity and our knack for mixing and matching. and while some are content with the classics, others are still striving to make the most over-the-top sundaes possible, from ben & jerry's "vermonster" to ghirardelli's "earthquake". at the end of the day, what makes the sundae special is that it's totally customizable – building your perfect sundae is (almost) as fun as eating it! check out the recipe for our "split" sundae above, but feel free to color outside the lines...
