London weather has been blissful this week, the sun has been gracing us with its beams and we've thrown off our winter coats to bask in the warmth that is Spring. And when the sun comes out to play, lollies and ice creams are the most delicious accessories. Today I was in search of some gourmet ice cream and stopped at Oddono's Gelati Italiani. There's something special about this place that keeps me coming back every spring/summer.
Firstly, I love the range, the choice of flavours. In fact there are 30 flavours, including cinnamon, basil, chocolate and cognac, vodka lemon, honey, chocolate ginger and chili ice cream. The best sellers are Chocolate, Nocciola (Hazelnut), Bacio (milky chocolate and hazelnut).
I also love the fact that the family run business creates their dessert masterpieces by sourcing the finest natural ingredients from around the world: Vanilla pods from Madagascar, Valhrona Chocolate from France, Natural Pistachios from Sicily, Hazelnut from Piedmont, the list goes on. If you're ever in Kensington, this is the place to go for a taste that's best described as ice cream heaven.
