The Ice Cream Route

The Ice Cream Route

Gérard Taurin, the best craftsman in France, a world champion ice-cream and sorbet maker, and an ice sculptor, is embarking on a journey to China, where the manufacture of ice-cream dates back to 200BC.

His task is to marry together his French ancestral techniques with the know-how of Chinese products, all in the pursuit of design and staging.

Two years in the making, his trip includes work on gastronomic research, enabling him to go and meet some of the local producers. The entire event is filmed and photographed, resulting in a documentary and a set of images.

The second part of the journey consists of events where the chef shares his know-how and experience, organising demonstrations and tastings, which are accompanied by the ‘live’ creation of an ice sculpture.

The ice-cream road to China is the 2nd stage of his research into the history of ice-cream, coming after a trip to North Africa (a 2010 project), but before he concentrates on Italy and France.
