My ice cream was judged to be a top 17 food product out of 12,634 food products entered at the Great Taste Awards 2018. I’ve won a total of 8 GOLD STARS at the Great Taste Awards, including the highest award (3 GOLD STARS) for my Sicilian Bronte Pistachio Ice Cream, and for my Single-Origin Sumatran Coffee Ice Cream. My Sicilian Bronte Pistachio Ice Cream also won the Golden Fork for the north of England award at the Great Taste Awards 2018.
I am entirely self-taught and have been running my own artisan ice cream business, Rogue Artisan Ice Cream, full-time for the past 3 years in Manchester, UK, where I serve up my ice cream at private events, corporate events, and weddings. I have also supplied the 5-star InterContinental Hotel in Mayfair, London.
