75 refreshingly inventive and dynamically flavoured seasonal ice creams, sorbets and granitas
Shortlisted for the Jane Grigson Trust Award
In a small converted greengrocers in south London (her ice cream shed), Kitty Travers creates an array of iced delights - fresh ice creams that taste of the real, whole fruits; hand-made choc ices that crack open to reveal layers of playful pastel-coloured flavours; juice-drenched granitas to be stuffed into brioche buns with fresh cream; and eye-popping, palate-tickling sorbets.
La Grotta Ices is the culmination of Kitty's obsessive exploration and research into 75 ice cream, sorbet and granita recipes. Sunlit flavours and far flung traditions pervade Kitty's ice creams as well as her ultimate inspiration: nature. La Grotta celebrates ripe seasonal fruits and the true artistry of real ice cream through inventive flavours and pure, natural ingredients.
