When a mint Cornetto just won’t cut it, artisan gelateria Gelupo (from the Bocca Di Lupo team) is always a winner, particularly now they’ve announced a brilliant-sounding collaboration project with seven Soho restaurants.
The upshot of the collaboration will be a set of new, highly creative flavours with each restaurant bringing their own international influence. So, that’ll mean Hawaiian-style chilli and pineapple from Kingly Street’s Island Poke, English-meets-Italian Campari with grapefruit flavour from Quo Vadis, and Blanchette’s offering: a blend of strawberries with Beaujolais. Which begs the question, why aren’t there *more* wine-based ice cream flavours?
The collaboration will run until the end of October, with flavours cycling each month making it totally reasonable to go back to Gelupo again, and again (and again, we reckon.)
The full list of restaurants and flavours are:
- In August, it’s Temper with lime, habanero salt and mezcal, and Island Poké with their pineapple and chilli gelato
- In September it’s Blanchette with Strawberries and Beaujolais gelato with strawberries macerated in Beaujolais, and Jinjuu with green tea, red bean swirl gelato with white chocolate covered crispies.
- In October, it’s The Palomar with tahini ice cream with date honey, toasted pistachios and rose petal kataifi, Quo Vadis with Campari and grapefruit gelato, and Ceviche with cancha and salted dulce de leche ice cream.
