All winter we’ve been secretly churning batch after batch of a very special frozen treat. This Summer, we’ve launched our first range of chocolate ice creams!
Made with our award winning milk and dark house chocolate blends and based on our award winning Artisan Bar flavours, the tubs are now available at all our London shops.
We have to thank our friends at Ice & Slice, who lent us their expertise in making delicious ice creams and sorbets and continue to create the range fresh each week for us in their kitchen. We met the guys at Ice & Slice when they were on a quest for the perfect chocolate on which to base their own dark chocolate ice cream. It led them to us and they popped in to our Kings Road shop to buy some chocolate. When they came back with tasters for us we couldn’t get enough and knew we’d found the perfect partner for our ice cream project.
This is where the fun started! Armed with our selected flavours, including our award winning Sea Salt milk and Cardamom white chocolate, our principal chocolatier Barry Johnson headed off to Ice & Slice’s basement kitchen to get creating. This was followed by ceremonial trips by most of the Rococo staff every couple of weeks to taste the latest recipe. After consuming ridiculous amounts of ice creams and sorbets, we finally settled on the final delicious recipes that reflect our bars perfectly.
Founder and creative director Chantal Coady said
“It’s so exciting to have found the prefect ice cream partner in Ice & Slice as for a while now we have been dreaming of making our own artisan ice creams based on the Rococo flavours. They are all excellent, but my favourites are the Cardamom & Pistachio, Crystallised Ginger and Basil & Pesian Lime. The dairy free chocolate sorbet is sumptuous: so creamy it’s hard to believe there is no cream in it!”
