The 9 yr old and I had a lovely drop-in at the Handmade Markets today in at the National Convention Centre today. The budget is low at present so I really went along to say ‘hi’ my crafty friends from Human Brochure.
I will have to do a little post specifically about the bag Theresa from A Little Bird Made Me is going to design and create for me soon! I am excited!
Anyhow, we were short on time so we headed straight for the ice-cream trolley (as you do in winter!)
(The photos suck…. sorry, I was working with a smudged smartphone)
John from Frugii spotted us looking at his selection of ice-cream and assured us that we could have as many samples as we like without having to buy. Boo-ya!!
When the 9 yr old chose to sample the Dark Chocolate Gelato, John came out to explain how he actually makes the gelato from cocoa beans that he roasts and grinds to perfection himself. It is a complex process!
We sampled the Dark Chocolate Gelato and enjoyed its delicate flavour even more after knowing the work that goes into making it.
The Salted Butter Caramel is my favourite. I could taste the salt, the butter and the caramel!
The Pavlova ice-cream had the crunch of meringue in it. What could be more Australian than that? Well, perhaps the Musk Stick flavour! Musk sticks were my favourite Australian lolly growing up and the taste made me all nostalgic.
After all our sampling, the 9 yr old chose to go with a cup of the Dark Chocolate Gelato.
Taste some Frugii ice-cream or gelato yourself. John’ wide range of flavours are made entirely from organic products, with no artificial colours or flavours. At the weekends you will find him at either Capital Regional Farmers Markets, Old Bus Depot Markets or Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets.
