whenever it gets this hot, my mind instantly starts to crave ice cream. this glorious chanel ice cone is one seriously cool customer, shot by hip fashion photographer liz von hoene.
as this wonderful uk heatwave continues i’m dreaming of a “coppa mmmm” from retro ice cream parlour marine ices on haverstock hill in nw3, or a “lazy sundae afternoon” from the chic parlour at fortnum and mason in piccadilly.
scoop is the place for authentic italian gelato in london, i love the gianduia del piemonte, amaretto di saronno, and crema buontalenti flavours.
and i’m very excited about the launch of freggo, a seriously cool argentine ice cream bar from the team behind the gaucho restaurants. i can’t wait to try the 6 flavour gift wrapped box of fruit flavours including malbec & berries and passion fruit.
ps. isn’t this wedding idea fantastic! it would be great to have a retro ice cream van pull up to offer the guests a sweet treat to celebrate the couple’s nuptials, as seen on luxury ice-cream specialist minghella’s website. they’d need it on a day like today!
