And so to Italy, via Fulham. Yes, just in time for the sun’s tentative emergence, the super-talented team behind Coffee Shot has been thoughtful enough to open Ice & Slice, a new pizza and ice-cream offering set to become the hot new destination for Italophiles. Which, let’s face it, means all of us.
Over its earthy wooden counters, the hungry of South Kensington and Fulham can pick up pizza al taglio (non parle Italiano?Che peccato! That’s by-the-slice to you, then), made with homemade sourdough, and artisanal ice-creams made daily and on-site in small batches kept in covered wells with Yeo Valley organic milk and double cream. Think ingredients like Granada Organic chocolate from Rococo, hazelnuts from Piedmont and Sicilian pistachios roasted-to-order, and whole fruit… Low in fat, sugar and calories, it’s served up slightly warmer than traditional ice-cream, so you can chomp your way through the winter too. Then gulp it all down with one or two house wines or beers…
Plus, if you live 3km or less from the store, they’ll home deliver. Dangerously good.
