GELATO VILLAGE LEICESTER ROSKILLY’S HELSTON
This authentic gelateria offers a refined selection of flavours crafted by maestro gelatiere Antonio De Vecchi, who learnt the traditional methods of making gelato in his native Italy. Gelato Village uses nonhomogenised milk from grass-fed red poll cows reared in Leicestershire and seasonal fruit and honey from local producers. For its superbly tasty pistachio and hazelnut, the highest-quality nuts are imported from Italy. Their menu states that the gelato is gluten-free, they also cater to halal and kosher diets and vegans, so no one misses out.
Stracciatella. The Roskillys have been perfecting their Cornish scoop since 1987. They started, like most ambitious ice-cream producers, by mimicking the gelato style and using imported Italian freezers and ready-made fruit purées for flavour. They kept the Italian know-how, but now choose to produce their own preservative-free fresh fruit purées which are blended straight into the mix. After building their own creamery in 2007, they now exclusively use the rich, organic milk from their fine herd of 125 plump Jersey cows.
