Prepare to make the most divine ice creams you’ve ever tasted with the help of Kitty Travers, founder of London’s La Grotta Ices. Kitty is renowned for her creative use of flavour, mastery of technique and commitment to natural ingredients, making her the go-to modern ice cream expert in the UK.

Kitty will share the expertise she gained travelling, studying and working in Europe and New York as you learn how to incorporate seasonal flavours into ice creams, granitas and sorbets using made-by-hand techniques and an ice cream machine. During the day, you’ll also create ices using the best of seasonal produce. The recipes for the next course may include:
At the end of the course you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a grand tasting of all the frozen delights you’ve produced.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day, as well as a buffet style lunch prepared by our team of chefs. All ingredients, equipment and recipes will be provided.
Please note: raw milk may be used on this course. Please contact the School directly if you have any queries.
