Alain Charteris – Master Ice Cream Maker
I’ve recently been in Brittany. Amongst many uninspiring Ice Cream Salons I discovered Alain Charteris. Master Ice Cream Maker extraordinaire, he has recieved many awards. The most interesting thing was some of the combinations, Ginger and Cacti is the one that springs to mind. However, for the faint-hearted there were more pedestrian flavours including Mango Sorbet and Lavender Ice Cream. They pass our test. Test is simple, can you match Roskillys in Cornwall? They did. Beautiful packaging, if Heston Blumenthal concentrated on ice cream I guess this is what he’d be produce.
