This month’s Taste of the West Producer of the month is Baboo Gelato Ltd.
Baboo Gelato was set up in 2015 by Annie Hanbury, a trained gelatiere, who wanted to combine her passion for making seriously good ice cream with the glut of fabulous ripe fruit on her doorstep.
There are no short cuts to making fabulous artisanal ice cream. They make everything from scratch in small batches, from pasteurising the raw milk in order not to cook it twice (which would destroy its fresh flavour), to pureeing our fruit to get the freshest flavours, and to making our own ripples and toppings.
They use state-of-the-art artisanal machinery imported from Italy. Their trusted Carpigiani Labotronic helps them get the smoothest, creamiest gelato possible. All in all, it’s hard work, but they think it tastes better for it.
