A huge congratulations to Sydney’s Cow and Moon, trumping other ice-cream artisans from all over the world on Sunday to taking out the Gelato World Tour title in Rimini, Italy.
Cow and Moon, a family-run gelato and coffee bar which is based in Enmore in Sydney’s inner-west, won this prestigious award for their mouth-watering almond affogato flavour, a re-creation of the classic affogato. Combining caramelised almonds sourced from Italy with single origin coffee on a Madagascan vanilla base.
After placing second in the Oceania category last year, Cow and the Moon went on to beat 23 other finalists from around the world in a combination of technical judging and public votes. Two other Australian teams competed, Gelato Messina and Frangipani Gelato.
Second and third places went to two Italian teams. Francesco Mastroianni of Il Cantagalli was ranked No. 2 and Alessandro Lancierini of Gelateria Fiore, No. 3.
Held by SIGEP and Carpigiani Gelato University, the Gelato World Tour Oceania round was hosted in Melbourne last October. The top three artisans were chosen out of 16 Australian and New Zealand competitors to travel to the finals in Italy. There the competitors faced scrutiny from the technical jury, a media jury, plus public tastings. Sounds tough.
Again congratulations to Sydney’s Cow and Moon.
