As summer comes to its end is a rush of warmth, we caught up with our ice cream makers, Baboo Gelato.
‘Ice cream is an important a trigger for happy memories,’ says co-founder Sam Hanbury.” And it may not be fashionable to admit it, but we just want to make the best-tasting gelato imaginable,” he says. Looking across the lab right now, at Annie, covered head to toe in raspberry puree, experimenting with a new batch of sorbet, it’s easy to believe him.
Having spent years in Singapore eating inspiring ice cream of every flavour and hue from durian to passion fruit, the ice cream in the UK just seemed characterless and boring when they returned home. They decided they wanted to start a UK gelato revolution and Annie went to gelato university in Bologna to learn the art. The result was Baboo, and they have been winning prizes for it ever since.
