What a busy month April has been! From Easter weekend at the beginning of the month, to the lovely weather we’ve been enjoying recently, April has brought so many people down to the shop here on South Street. We’re so pleased to have shared the past few weeks with you all. Long may the sunshine continue!
Spring is a time of change, a time to try new things – and with this in mind, we’ve launched two new flavours! On the left hand side here we have pandan gelato, flavoured with this tropical plant which is commonly found in Australia and the Pacific Islands. Some people have likened the taste to the milk left over after you’ve finished your cereal, while others think it has a flavour similar to custard. The only way to decide is to stop by the shop and try it for yourself!
Meanwhile, our new rhubarb and ginger sorbet, pictured on the right hand side, is much lighter and perfect for these sunny spring days. Why not take advantage of the longer, lighter evenings here in St Andrews and stop in past to sample our sorbet?
Earlier this month, we were delighted to welcome the Found St Andrews Contemporary Dance Group, who came along and entertained our customers as part of the hugely successful On The Rocks Festival. This annual celebration of art, fashion, theatre, photography, film and music is organised by students at the University of St Andrews, and we were thrilled to be a part of it. Well done to everyone involved!
Speaking of events and festivals, we’re looking forward to attending the 8th annual Crail Food Festival on the 9th and 10th June, where we will be collaborating with Sacred Grounds, based in Arbroath. This artisan roastery is equally passionate about coffee as we are about gelato, and we love their values. At the festival, Owen will be working with Ian from Sacred Grounds to create a coffee-infused gelato, using seasonal, ethically-sourced coffee beans. Tickets for Crail Food Festival are on sale now, so buy yours soon and make sure to get a front-row spot at this dynamic duo’s demonstration!
