Festivities raise spirits

The Food Festival’s Spring Harvest event has spawned many little mini events throughout the city. Two of these came to happy conclusion on Saturday 9 April,

Having whittled down the flavours from 1,114 suggestions to a final five, the winner of the Great Brighton Ice Cream Competition was picked this weekend at the Brighton & Hove Food and Drink Festival’s Live Food Show at the Royal York Hotel.

“We were overwhelmed by the huge response and have had great fun picking, making – and tasting – the five finalist flavours and I think that we have managed to find a really special flavour as the winner”, said Seb Cole of Boho Gelato.

Local foodie Andrew Kay who helped the children judge the winning ice cream said, “The five shortlisted ice-creams were all delicious and I found it as hard to decide which should be the winner as the children did when we asked them to pick their favourite.”

“In the end my casting vote went to a rose lassi ice-cream designed by Jay Joshi from Carlton Hill Primary School”, continues Andrew. “It had a great flavour and texture and being yogurt based could also be a healthier option. It really is delicious and tastes like creamy Turkish delight. I look forward to being able to buy it from Boho Gelato and other outlets across the city when it goes on sale under the name Brighton Rose.”

Winner Jay will be invited to the kitchen of Boho Gelato to see his ice cream being made, then a delivery of the flavour will be sent to his school for his class mates to enjoy.

Throughout summer 2011, local restaurants and tourism businesses will be selling the Great Brighton Ice Cream flavour to raise money for Brighton’s Rockinghorse children’s charity.

Analiese Doctrove, Rockinghorse Community Fundraiser, said, “We think the ice-cream competition was a really great idea and it’s fantastic to get children involved in something so creative. We were overwhelmed by the response and all the five finalists should be very proud. We’d like to thank Child Friendly Brighton, the festival and Boho Gelato for all their efforts.”

Nick Mosley, director of the food festival, said “The Great Brighton Ice Cream competition was a fitting close to our fantastic 10-day Spring Harvest food festival. We’re already well underway in planning events – including the return of some favourites and some brand new ones – for our main food festival in September 2011.”

If you’d like to taste Brighton Rose today then head to Boho Gelato in Pool Valley.
