About Kitty: In a small converted green grocers in south London, home to her ice-cream shed, Kitty creates an array of iced delights and fresh ice-creams that taste of real, whole fruits; hand-made choc ices that crack open to reveal layers of playful pastel-coloured flavours; juice-drenched granitas to be stuffed into brioche buns with fresh cream; and eye-popping palate-tickling sorbets to enliven your taste buds. This is the culmination of the years of work and research that makes Kitty Travers of Le Grotta ice-creams so celebrated. A life-long ice-cream enthusiast, Kitty got her training in New York, she then returned to London as a pastry chef. She spent five years at St John, before buying and old Piaggio Ape and setting up La Grotto in 2008.

In this time she has used every spare moment for travel and research - the sunlit flavours and far-flue traditions of these places pervade Kitty’s ice-creams, along with her ultimate inspiration; nature. The results are pure and delicious - with flavours that embrace ripe seasonal fruits to perfumed herbs and foraged blossoms.
