The Eden Project in Cornwall have launched a range of tropical ice creams, all inspired by plants that are showcased within the huge biomes found at the attraction.
They have been made using the ingredient panela, which is unrefined Colombian whole cane sugar. The ice creams are part of a joint project with ice cream producers Roskilly’s who use milk from their own Jersey cows.
Flavours including Strawberry Sorbet and Panela are now on offer at The Eden Project, supporting the various projects and programs offered by the charity.
Eden’s Procurement Director Andrew Holden told FOODLOVER: “In working with two of our key suppliers, Roskilly’s and Hasslachers, we have been able to combine great local knowledge with exceptional ingredients to create a truly extraordinary treat.
“The ice cream even gets the Colombian seal of approval. When the Colombian Ambassador Mauricio Rodriguez came to sample the new ice cream range, he was overcome with how authentic the Rainforest Biome is and so impressed with the ice cream that he immediately ordered a crate of each flavour to serve to guests at the London Embassy.”
