La Grotta Ices




75 refreshingly inventive and dynamically flavoured seasonal ice creams, sorbets and granitas.

Featuring 75 refreshing recipes, this book is the ultimate gift for ice cream fans.

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.

'Kitty is an ice cream magician, her flavours are total food alchemy, it's like she's climbed inside my head and come up with my dream flavours. I am spellbound' Anna Jones
