Tags: King's Cross Ice Cream Festival, Sorbitium
Here are some pictures from the King’s Cross Ice Cream Festival which took place last weekend. There were many ice cream stands and it was all terribly English as multiple huge queues snaked around the area in front of the new Central St Martin’s. It was something of an ice cream frenzy as people joined their places at the back of queues while still eating their previous treat. The stall making ice cream with liquid nitrogen was very popular:
We ended up opting for ice cream from Sorbitium which was offering up tempting flavours like strawberry and buttermilk, dark chocolate and chipotle, sea-salted caramel and macha tea and bronte pistachio. Sadly we arrived too late to sample the greengage and hazelnut crumble (sold out!) and too late for cones (sold out!):
I’m not actually that bothered about cones so was more than happy with my tub of strawberry and caramel:
It wasn’t just about eating. There was also a science boffin stand where you could mix your own ice cream, a faux cow for milking (I’m not sure if there were real cows too, I missed that if so) and a giant ice sculpture (very impressive but I hope no-one tried licking it – cue comedy moment).
