London larder: Scoop
You know that one scoop is never enough when you find yourself lingering at the entrance to Scoop wondering about seconds having just devoured a double Crème Brûlée/ Bacio. Since opening its doors in 2007, this gelateria has served up some of the best gelato in London. It now has three stores, including the original Covent Garden one. Flavours are straight from the Italian classics with each scoop a celebration of single origin ingredients. Noteworthy ones include Torroncino made with almond or hazelnut nougat from either Piedmont (Italy) or Montelimar (France)and Pistacchio from nuts found in Bronte, Sicily. There are sorbets and cakes to tempt and watch out for its special flavours and events. Open til late, it's the perfect after-dinner spot. Bravissimo.
