Bespoke ice cream: 8 of the most popular ice cream joints on the planet

Gelateria Petrini (Rome)The Italian capital tops our list and, though there are many delicious gelato shops in Rome, Petrini stands out for its tradition and meticulous preparation, not to mention the impeccable quality of its ingredients. Try the “gusto ciocolatto fondente.”

Rocambolesc (Madrid and Gerona)The Roca brothers’ pastry chef is also an expert ice cream maker. Rocambolesc is a fun place to enjoy a gourmet scoop and discover the rest of Jordi Roca’s sweets, with locations in Madrid, Gerona and Playa de Aro.

Bamas (Bayona)The brains behind this business is the maestro, Thierry Bamas, who’s won major prizes, including the Rimini Gelato World Cup. At Bamas, the standout flavor is vanilla: the chef believes it’s the best way to savor the creaminess.

OddFellows Ice Cream (New York) One of America’s best ice cream parlors is this place in Williamsburg. Care for a scoop of beet goat cheese?

Cadore (Buenos Aires)The Italian tradition has arrived in Argentina by way of the Olivotti family, who imported the recipe from their ancestral home of Cadore, Italy. Of course, you have to try the dulce de leche flavor, the perfect union of the two countries.

Ice Cream City (Tokyo) More than a simple shop, this is a retail space with dozens of booths dedicated to the sweet concoction, located in the Namja leisure center. The range of flavors is endless and the experience is unforgettable for ice cream lovers.

Della Sera (Logroño)In Spain’s La Rioja region we find Fernando Sáenz’s internationally renowned ice cream shop, featuring innovative flavors and unbeatable classics. A visit is a must when travelling through this beautiful wine region.

Smitten (San Francisco)At this shop in the US, the flavors change according to which products are in season and the creators use liquid nitrogen in the preparation of the ice cream to enhance the texture. Technology and haute cuisine come together at this one-of-a-kind parlor.

While you decide where you’ll head next to try these culinary wonders, check out this link to our summer jewelry collection, as sweet and refreshing as ice cream itself.

Poké: the new sea salad from Hawaii

2

Pronounced as “poke-ay”, it is the first on a long list of dishes coming from Hawaii, because this year Hawaiian cuisine is here to stay. Poké, which in Hawaiian means ‘to cut’ or ‘section’ is a raw fish salad (like a ceviche or tartar) accompanied with onion, macadamia, mangos, chilli peppers, sesame, ginger or whatever you’re most in the mood for. It is served as an aperitif or a main dish, and in the USA ‘pokerias’ in which to sample this delicious dish are beginning to abound.

Avocado oil: the beauty trend that’s reached the table

It started out in Mexico as a beauty trend to apply to hair and skin, but thanks to its nutrients and anti-oxidants, it has been incorporated into numerous international recipes and dishes such as hummus, risotto, tabbouleh… Avocado oil aims to displace olive oil and it looks set to succeed, even if just on Instagram, the foodie social network par excellence.

Foodtail: cocktail and meal in one sole experience

The Foodtail trend was born in France under two major chefs, although more and more restaurants are offering this experience. It consists of creating delicious, alcoholic cocktails with gin, vermouth or champagne and mixing them with edible ingredients such as wild mushrooms, oysters, pumpkin or mandarin, among others. Those who’ve tried them cannot resist this experience, perfect for any time of the day.

Flexitarians are more vegetarian than carnivores, although they combine the best of both diets to obtain the optimum balance. This food trend is based on mainly eating products of vegetal origin, although every now and then they ‘break the rules’ and eat red or white meat. There are numerous national and international associations that promote this model and claim to be the most sustainable and perfect trend for healthy eating.
