Theweather this summer has been, in all honesty, pretty rubbish. Summer should be about the best things in life – sunshine, fun times and ice cream, but it’ll take more than a little cloud cover to stop us from having fun and eating ice cream!
We’re getting excited for one of this weekend’s most exciting events, the King’s Cross Ice Cream Festival and warming up to gorge ourselves on frozen dairy treats. Running on both Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September at the brand new Granary Square between the redeveloped St Pancras and King’s Cross stations, it promises to be a great day out for anyone with a sweet tooth.
The area is pretty significant for British ice cream – Italian Carlo Gatti bought ice cream to the UK in 1851 and sold it from his house in King’s Cross. Fast forward a century and a half and we now have a family friendly two-day event promising everything from getting involved with milking a cow right through to the tasty end product and everything in-between.
It will be a hands-on, interactive day where you’ll be able to make ice cream using the latest nitrogen technology or take part in ice cream art. If it all gets too much though you can of course just chill out on the Granary Square beach with your ice cream. Serious foodies will also be able to enjoy gourmet creations from Morelli’s of Harrods, Gelatorino of Covent Garden, nitrogen specialist Mad Cap Charlie, and sheep’s milk specialists Shepherds of Herefordshire.
Best of all, the event is completely free to attend, so don’t give up on summer just yet and treat youself to an ice cream or two!!
