Giapo scoops Kiwi ice cream accolade

Giapo scoops Kiwi ice cream accolade

As summer scorches on, ice cream lovers have spoken out on Trip Advisor: Auckland’s Giapo Haute Ice Cream serves the nation’s best frozen ‘creations’.

Chef Giapo Grazioli uses only natural and organic ingredients and makes his ice cream twice daily in his Queen St store, serving thousands of scoops every day.

Giapo’s flavours change weekly, each one inspired by a New Zealand theme such as lamington, afghan, hokey pokey and Pavlova.

Grazioli describes his ‘creations’ as ‘haute ice cream’.

“We’re delighted that travellers, like so many native Aucklanders, find our ice cream so special,” Grazioli says. “It makes me so proud that we have been able to change the way people experience ice cream. They love it and they keep coming back for more.”

The latest accolade comes as Grazioloi is in Rimini as a guest of SIGEP to attend the world’s largest ice cream expo. The Trip Advisor Top 10 Ice Cream Parlours is based on reviews by users of the popular travel site.

At Giapo in Auckland’s Queen Street, six chefs create up to 16 flavours of ice-cream fresh each day which are sold within the day. Every week, the kitchen team meets to decide on the creations for the following seven days, pouring over ingredients, flavours and techniques that will connect with thousands of people a day.
