Ice­cream scoops top award

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS - By KARINA ABADIA

An ice cream maker’s cre­ativ­ity has been recog­nised with the Cui­sine 2014 best ar­ti­san ex­pe­ri­ence award.

Gian­paolo Grazi­oli’s tiramisu ice­cream was one of 40 ar­ti­san prod­ucts named as fi­nal­ists from more than 70 en­tries.

Mr Grazi­oli then went on to be­come one of 10 win­ners.

The Gi­apo ice­cream store owner also en­tered his tiramisu ice cream in the Aus­tralasian leg of the Ge­lato World Tour in Mel­bourne last year ( Auck­land City Har­bour News, Oc­to­ber 4).

But the sweet treat wasn’t se­lected to go on to com­pete for the ti­tle of World’s Best Ge­lato at an event which will be held in Ri­mini in Italy in Septem­ber.

‘‘We did not make it but I am pretty sure the flavour was the most pop­u­lar there as we had the long­est line and every­body loved it,’’ he says.

He and the other nine win­ners of the Cui­sine ar­ti­san awards 2014 will be cel­e­brated at an awards din­ner at The Sugar Club on March 20.
