Michelin Starred Gelato

A collection of limited edition Gelato flavours developed with some of the most acclaimed chefs in the UK.  

 Each chef involved in the unique initiative has developed and supplied Gelupo with a recipe, that showcases hero flavours and ingredients commonly found on their own restaurant menus.

The range will be available until the end of the year.


Yoshi Ishii, Umu – 玄米茶 Gelato

Genmaicha 玄米茶 is the Japanese name for green tea combined with roasted brown rice. We make the gelato with some honey to give it a nice tone and smooth richness.

Yoshinori Ishii brings over twenty years of cooking experience to the elegant dishes for which Umu is famed. As well as being a highly accomplished chef, he is also a skilled fisherman, potter, and calligrapher. Ishii has a rare eye for artful display as well as flavour, incorporating his expertise as not only a chef but also a skilled artist into each dish.

Michel Roux, Le Gavroche - Rice Pudding Gelato

Rice pudding gelato made from rice cooked with milk, bay leaf and Plum Eau De Vie with a Plum ripple. That's what we call Gelato comport! 😊

Michel Roux Jr was born in 1960 in Pembury, Kent, where his father Albert Roux worked as a private chef for the Cazalet family. His earliest food memories are the smells of the Fairlawne kitchen – pastry, sugar caramelizing and stews – where he played under the table while his father and mother Monique prepared the meals.

Fergus Henderson, St John – Dr. Henderson

The formula for the "Dr Henderson” consists of two parts Fernet-Branca to one-part crème de menthe, though Mr Henderson Snr advocates a ratio of 7:1(!) the result is a unique and unusual Gelato.

Fergus Henderson, MBE is an English chef who founded St John restaurant on St John Street in London. He is often noted for his use of offal and other neglected cuts of meat as a consequence of his philosophy of nose to tail eating.

Pierre Koffmann, Koffmann's – Cuban Tabaco & Dark Rum

The Cuban Cigar brings amazing peppery and woody flavours with roasted cocoa and chestnut spiced up with Cuban Rum. This Gelato is for adults only.

Pierre Koffmann first worked as a chef in Strasbourg and Toulon, before moving in 1970 to the United Kingdom to work with Michel and Albert Roux at Le Gavroche. He originally only wanted to move to the UK so that he could see England play France in Rugby at Twickenham Stadium. He opened his first restaurant, La Tante Claire in 1977 in Royal Hospital Road, Chelsea.

Arnaud Bignon, The Greenhouse – Yuzu & Green Shiso

Shiso is a traditional Japanese herb with refreshing aromatic green frilled leaves. It tastes almost like mint so when adding the citrusy Yuzu, we get a sharp aromatic zesty note with a rounded cool fresh Shiso gelato.

Arnaud Bignon is producing some extraordinary food at The Greenhouse restaurant in Mayfair, London. High quality seasonal ingredients become an essential part of his approach to cooking – a philosophy combining traditional French techniques with contemporary techniques.

Bruce Poole, Chez Bruce – Toasted Almonds with Cherries

For us taste is simple. Take our Fresh Mint Stracciatella gelato. It tastes more of fresh Mint than Mint, it sings of the freshness, not drowned in sugar or artificial flavorings. Our chocolate gelato is a sorbet, not because we wanted to make a low fat ice cream, but because as a sorbet we can make it even more chocolaty!

We are proud to say that we are sourcing the best ingredients in the markets and we will do whatever it takes to work with prime produce.

What we believe in.

We are passionate about the flavour and texture of our Gelato and we aim to preserve the tradition of artisan Italian Gelato making. We are keen to build partnerships with our clients and we encourage creativity and innovation. Some of our clients are market leaders which gives us a fantastic knowledge of the market needs.

The way we work.

Our gelato is made by our amazing team of skilled Gelato makers. We produce every day in the heart of London small batches of joy! The texture of Gelupo gelato is dense, much heavier than a standard ice cream. We achieve this by keeping our fat content low, and by using very special churning equipment that mixes our gelato ever-so-gently as it freezes. This density, and the low fat levels give a big hit of flavour, with a very clean finish.
