From August to October, Gelupo will collaborate with seven of Soho’s finest restaurants to launch a menu of exclusive gelatos inspired by flavours around the world. 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 menus.
Launching in August, this cultural journey will start off in the sweltering Southern Hemisphere with Neil Rankin from Temper designing his very own “helado” in the form of a Smokey Margarita sorbet. His flavour personifies South America and Latino flavours with Lime, Mezcal with a sprinkling of Habanero Salt. The second flavour form will take us to the Central Pacific all the way to the rugged volcanic island of Hawaii with Island Poké who made a sweet and fiery hit of Pineapple and Chilli.
With the hazy summer coming to an end, September will see Tomer Amedi from the Palomar bringing us a savory-sweet flavour explosion of traditional Tahini ice cream with lashings of date honey, toasted pistachios, and a rose petal kadaif. Tahini isn’t just for falafel! Travelling from Middle East to Europe, Blanchette's William Alexander brings us a bit of the “belle vie” with a delicious and seasonal combination of Strawberries and Beaujolais wine. The sweetness of the strawberries and depth of the wine flavour make for a really interesting juxtaposition.
Into October we travel over to Judy Joo from Jinjuu taking us to Korea with her own unique twist on a traditional drink - Matcha with a sweet red bean swirl and crunchy white chocolate covered crispies. Jeremy Lee from Quo Vadis comes forward with his take on the popular Italian liqueur and combines Campari with Grapefruit. This flavour embodies the ever popular Italian drink and makes for a perfect bitter-sweet hit for those October evenings as the days grow shorter. Completing our journey in October with a round trip back to South America, Martin Morales from Ceviche steps up and brings the favourite dessert of South America to London. His flavour combines the traditional savoury crunch of toasted Cancha and Salted Dulce De Leche ice cream.
White truffle season has started! Unlike their black
cousins ‘truffles of the white mother’ are only
available for a couple of months and differ in taste
Smelling of ploughed soil and autumn rain these
truffles have a deep and delicate taste. This superior
flavour is reflected in their price, but we sell them at
some of the cheapest prices in town!
Ours come from Alba, in Northern Italy, and are sold
by Mr. Piercarlo who is the President of the Piedmont
Truffle Hunter Association - he knows his truffles, and
also sells to the likes of Harrods.
Please see our in-store blackboard for our current
availability! We also accept phone reservations.
Monday to Thursday, 11:00 - 23:00
