What's new to Foodies
Proudly brought to you by Foodies Australia
Serendipity is a family business which was started in 1966 by Sarah’s mother, Alix Mandelson. She started making her own ice cream at home because, at the time, the most exotic ice cream available in Sydney was Neapolitan – and was allergic to chocolate!
Alix was a pioneer of the gourmet ice cream market, making daring flavours such as Maple Walnut, Pistachio, and Rum & Raisin. These days, those flavours are considered standard, but they still make daring flavours to challenge the ice cream world and your taste buds. These flavours include Durian, Halva or Salted Palm Sugar ice creams… and Blood Orange, Gin & Tonic, or Passionfruit & Chilli sorbets. In fact, at any given time of the year, they keep over 100 flavours in stock.
The Serendipity Team & Sarah still make their products in small batches using artisan techniques and they use the best natural ingredients. The milk and cream are fresh from the pastures of northern NSW, the sugar comes from northern Queensland, freshly squeezed blood orange juice from Red Belly in Griffith, and they source as many of their premium ingredients as possible from local growers and producers. Of course there are some things that aren’t grown here (or aren’t up to scratch) so they use imported goodies like Belgian chocolate, Heilala vanilla beans from Tonga, and organic raspberries from Chile.
