Treat of the Week: Nocciola Gelato

Posted · Add Comment

Before summer finally ends and you’re still in the mood for ice cream… gloriously smooth and nutty Nocciola Gelato is made from hazelnuts grown by four generations of the same Italian family in Piemonte. Counterintuitively, it’s actually produced in Bristol, by Swoon, an artisanal gelateria that  specialises in rich and silken, well-sourced and richly-flavoured gelatos (gelato can contain up to 50 per cent less fat than  a traditional ice cream, too). Swoon’s Nocciola Gelato’s fulsome nuttiness also impressed the judges at this year’s Great Taste Awards. They voted it Supreme Champion 2019, describing it as a  ‘pure, unadulterated hazelnut hit, carried on a silky spoonful of perfectly executed gelato’.
