Looking for a refreshing treat on a hot summer’s day? Italian style fruit sorbetti ticks all our boxes. Made fresh from real fruit, not too much sugar, and churned slowly to give a gorgeous dense and creamy texture. And lucky Melbournians can enjoy superb fruit-based sorbetti from a new artisan producer – Buonissimo.
The charming Maurizio from Buonissimo has fitted up a small van as a mobile sorbetteria and is scooping his luscious sorbetti at events through summer.
Recognised with the seal of approval by the Federazione Internazionale Pasticceria Gelateria Cioccolateria (International Federation of Pastry, Ice Cream and Chocolate), Buonissimo’s sorbetti are absolutely gorgeous.
No artificial colourings, flavourings, preservatives or emulsifiers are used and the ingredients are all natural, organic, vegan friendly and make extensive use of seasonal fruits.
I recently caught up with Buonissimo at Melbourne Street Eatz at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
My pick – Italian lemon paired with strawberry. Lemon is an absolute star – made from real Sicilian lemons, it is packed with tangy citrus flavour. Watery fruit like strawberries can be challenging to turn into sorbetto, but Buonissimo’s strawberry sorbetto is magnificent. And everything is completely natural.
Don’t expect a huge menu – Buonissimo’s little van has room for only a handful of flavours. And every one of those flavours will be fantastic.
Outstanding Italian-style sorbetti – freshly made from all natural, organic, vegan friendly ingredients. Be sure to check Buonissimo’s social media to find its next location.
