Newcastle-based husband and wife duo Simon and Jo-Ann Welby really, really love the way the Italians do ice-cream. The recipe might be Italian but the ingredients are local. Suppliers include Dale Farm and Finlays of Moira.
Flavours include Ricotta and Apricot, Watermelon and Irish Black Butter.
They have a darling little truck which can be found at fairs and events across Northern Ireland. They are also in some shops and restaurants. They would love to be in more, so do get in touch!
