Our Persian inspired Akbar Mashti gelato was just named best “sweet” in the annual Made In Vancouver Awards by Vancouver Magazine. Featured in their August 2020 issue, they write:
“In this time of peak ice cream, crafting something that still wows our dairy-savvy judges is no small feat. They’ve tasted the richest of the chocolates, the sweetest vanillas, the lightest granitas. Which is why we’re so stunned with this category-defying creation from Uno Gelato, the micro-batch specialist that’s been on a tear of late in Vancouver. But their next big thing is actually a throwback of sorts—the original recipe for Akbar Mashti is said to have been created by a Persian artisan of the same name who was the pioneer in selling ice cream in 1920s Iran. The original ingredients—fragrant saffron, rosewater, Iranian Devonshire cream and roasted pistachios—are joined by local Avalon Dairy milk and B.C. birch syrup from Quesnel to create a modern mash-up that blends the Middle East with Southern Europe and the Lower Mainland.”
