Hackney Gelato Wins 3 Stars At The Great Taste Awards (2022)
Hackney Gelato‘s Sam Newman and Enrico Pavoncelli have made their mums proud by scooping up three stars for three different recipes at 2022’s Great Taste Awards.
Each year, 2% of products are awarded with three stars in the ‘Exquisite’ category for ‘extraordinarily tasty food.’ This August when the results were announced, Hackney Gelato completely smashed it. They won three stars for three different recipes: Pistachio, Almond & Lemon gelato, Sea Salted Caramel gelato, and Hot Cross Bun gelato.
Here’s what the judging panel had to say about Hackney Gelato’s Pistachio, Almond & Lemon flavour: “The taste is delicious, starting with the almonds and pistachios and ending with the citrus notes. A truly memorable experience, unlike any other ice cream we have tried.”
And it would be rude not to mention Hackney Gelato’s nuovo Cappuccino gelato recipe, branded as ‘faultless.’ The flavour picked up two stars in the ‘Outstanding’ category – regarded as ‘above and beyond delicious – with less than 10% of entries achieving this rating.’
Other Hackney Gelato recipes that picked up a coveted one star were the Vegan Bronte Pistachio Brittle, the Roasted Pecan and Caramel sorbetto, and the Peanut Butter and Chocolate gelato.
Hackney Gelato was Founded by two Chefs named Sam Newman and Enrico Pavoncelli who grew up in Italy. They met at London’s Michelin-starred Locanda Locatelli. After years of talking about bringing proper Italian gelato to the UK, they travelled back home to hone their craft with the master gelatieri of Sicily.
With a head full of knowledge and a suitcase full of Bronte pistachios, they returned to London, and Hackney Gelato was born. They started out by making bespoke gelato recipes for the best chefs in London. The most popular ones made it into tubs to be sold in shops and delis across the land.
Hackney gelato is made using traditional Italian slow churning techniques and proper ingredients. It’s proudly served in Michelin Star restaurants, but it tastes equally as good spooned straight from the tub in your pyjamas.
