Sheraton Grand London Park Lane has joined forces with the reigning World Cup Gelato Champion to bring World Cup winning ice cream to its Italian restaurant Mercante. Mercante has launched an exclusive ice cream menu developed with World Gelato Master Eugenio Morrone – the only place in the UK to serve World Cup winning gelato this summer.
The hatrick of flavours are available to take away from Mercante’s bespoke ice cream cart and served in shining golden trophies, or enjoyed sitting on the terrace whilst soaking up the Mayfair sunshine. The summer terrace is ideally located on Piccadilly, overlooking Green Park and just a five-minute walk from Hyde Park. Foodies with a sweet tooth can indulge in the Golden Summer, Sweet & Spicy or Parco Verde, with prices starting from £7.90.
The bespoke gelato has been developed using a brand new and exclusive recipe. The triumphant creations are not available anywhere else in the UK and Mercante is the only place to taste the World Cup winning flavours:
- Golden Summer – pistachio gelato crowned with a home-made raspberry drizzle, inspired by the recipe that scooped Eugenio first place in the World Cup
- Sweet & Spicy – hotting things up with the perfect blend of decadent dark chocolate and Sichuan pepper. Prepared with the highest quality cocoa powder, taste buds will tingle with a citrus kick
- Parco Verde – inspired by Mercante’s neighbour Green Park, this sorbet is a dairy-free dream combining cinnamon flowers with apples, pine nuts and raisins to create a refreshing summer sorbet
Mercante at Sheraton Grand London Park Lane is the perfect space for bringing friends and family together, with menus that offer a fresh take on classic Italian delights. The team has worked closely with ice cream connoisseur Eugenio Morrone to develop an unbeatable menu. Eugenio has participated in the most prestigious international competitions where he was crowned first place at the 2020 Gelato World Cup, as well as becoming the first gelato maker to feature in the Gelato World Ranking 2022 Hall of Fame.
Mercante Restaurant Manager, Elia Becher says: “Gelato is synonymous with summertime, and we are honoured to be working with the Gelato World Cup champion on this very special menu. We’ve worked closely with Eugenio to develop our flavours and the offering is guaranteed to bring some Italian magic to Mayfair.”
Gelato Maker, Eugenio Morrone said: “If you put passion into things, you can achieve anything in life – I’ve always been fascinated with the process of making Gelato and the thrill of developing flavour combinations that work well together. It has been exciting to work with the talented Mercante team and it is a privilege to deliver the taste of World Cup winning gelato to Mayfair!”
The ‘World Cup Winning Gelato’ menu is available now to dine in at Mercante and enjoy or to take on the terrace from the Mercante ice cream cart Thursday – Sunday, 3pm-5pm until the 31st August.
