Craftsmanship and success are our watchwords at Il Gelato del Marchese. To meet these requirements, we surround ourselves with the best. Our master glaciers have their own family recipes. They choose and know the best ingredients, then we test, we cook, and we transform to the perfect balance of flavors. All products are ordered raw (pistachios, hazelnuts, …) then are roasted on site and integrated into the ice cream base. A long process is done to bring the textures and taste balances to perfection. Our ice creams are also very light in sugar to allow flavors to fully express themselves.
The ice creams are prepared daily in Paris, using fresh and seasonal products only.
The right choice of the right ingredients is the key. The quality of the fruits, the origin of pistachios, the choice of milk, eggs … We have an extremely demanding quality criteria regarding to the selection of the ingredients.
Our recipes are elaborated from a long and attentive research work. We only use the minimum necessary amount of sugar for our ice cream. Also sugar is obviously raw, and unrefined.
We never artificially air expend our ice cream. They have the minimum requested amount of air to obtain a concentration of a maximum of aromas.
The preparation of ingredients is done on the site and follows a meticulous process : the fruits are hand-peeled, seeded and emptied before being processed. Pistachios, almonds, coffee beans… are roasted on site. Special recipes like Tiramisu ice cream are made from an actual Tiramisu, prepared by our pastry chef, then turned into an ice cream.
Our ice creams are 100% natural and 100% artisanal. They have no additives, no colorings or artificial flavors and no preservatives.
