Featuring the cult favourite Smith & Deli Cardamon & Cinnamon Doughnut by Shannon Martinez.
Piccolina is using rice milk to churn up four insanely delicious and creamy vegan gelato flavours that will become a permanent fixture on the menu, launching across all stores on Wednesday, 16 June 2021.
The cult favourite Cardamon & Cinnamon Doughnut by Smith & Deli is one of the four permanent flavours and has been designed by Melbourne’s queen of vegan cuisine, Shannon Martinez, who first teamed up with Piccolina earlier this year to perfect the special flavour as a part of The Piccolina Gelato Project: 8 Chefs in 8 Weeks, Series 1.
“I’m always excited to work with people that have something to teach me, and I get even more excited that I get to do a collaboration with a fellow female owner/operator, because that is super rare!” says Shannon.
Her doughnut flavour will feature alongside Piccolina’s new vegan additions, which include Pistacchio, Better than Nutella and a take on Zoe Birch’s S’mores with homemade chocolate ganache and a chocolate butter biscuit. Zoe’s flavour also launched earlier this year as a part of The Piccolina Gelato Project.
Piccolina’s popular existing vegan options will remain, including Dark Chocolate, Strawberry, Lemon and Passionfruit.
Piccolina is already known for mouth-watering, traditionally made gelato, but their upcoming initiative is revolutionising the gelateria’s vegan options. “Whenever we feature vegan specials, our customers beg for them to make a comeback,” says Sandra Foti, founder of Piccolina. “We only use 100% natural ingredients and we always invest in quality produce. We’re so excited to have developed something new to offer our customers,” says Foti.
New vegan flavours include:
• Cardamon & Cinnamon Doughnut by Shannon Martinez
• Better than Nutella
• Cookies & Cream
Vegan flavours on the existing menu include:
• Dark Chocolate
Per scoop: $5.80 for one; $6.80 for two; $8.80 for three.
Launching across all stores on Wednesday, 16 June 2021.
