So this is rather cute. In an attempt - successful we'd say - to up the ice-cream game as we hit summer, Selfridges have introduced this crazily Insta-friendly dessert in their Food Hall.
Available from the Snowflake gelato counter, the Avolato is made from 60% hass avocado, served in the avocado skin, with an editlbe nut butter stone. It's vegan, dairy and gluten-free and looks freakishly like an actual avocado. Fancy it? It'll set you back

At this time of year (or any other, not to think of it) we can NEVER get enough ice cream - and we're liking the look of these new creations from Pierre Marcolini.
They're his Esquimau choc ice bar, and you'll be able to pick from a choice of six ice creams or sorbets - Vanilla, Chocolate, Caramel, White sesame, Mango, Raspberry. But that's not it, of course, as you'll then get to dip your ice cream bar in one of

We're pretty partial to a scoop or two of Gelupo ice-cream so we're quite taken with their latest wheeze. To tie in with the launch of the new Michelin guide they've come up with a special collaboration - seven gelato collaborations with seven Michelin-starred chefs. Each flavour ties in with the kind of dishes you'd find at their restaurants. And they are:
