From an early age, my unconventional parents would close their take away business for a few weeks, pack our suitcases and visit exciting destinations during my childhood in the early 80’s. From Yugoslavia, Sicily, Hawaii, Tunisia, Taiwan, San Francisco & LA.
Ever since I had my first taste of ice cream as a young child I’ve been hooked!
Myself and my husband Anthony went on a life-changing trip around South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand back in 2006.
When we returned to England, I set about creating a range of artisan ice cream and sorbets that were inspired by my Chinese heritage, travels and childhood trips to local ice cream parlours in Yorkshire.
Both my parents were talented chefs and enjoyed entertaining friends and family, cooking delicious dishes and sharing each others company long into the night.
From a young age, I got the travelling bug and loved being adventurous with different food and flavours.
I always thought “wouldn’t it be great to finish off the Chinese, Thai or Indian meal with a great dessert” that suits the meal.
I have truthfully made this a passion of mine and developed flavours that work perfectly with these dishes.
We source the best ingredients from around the globe, blending different flavour combinations to create an inspirational flavour experiences.
All our ice creams are gluten free and made with real milk and whipping cream, low in fat and full of flavour. Our sorbets are lactose free and made with real fruit purees, fresh, juicy and refreshing on the palate.
Yee Kwan entered BBC’s Dragons Den back in February 2015, it gave us the spring board to bring our brand and flavours into the main stream. Yee Kwan admits that it was a daunting experience in “the Den” but she made an impact with all the Dragons and received 2 offers, finally deciding to choose Deborah Meaden as an investor.
Since her TV appearance, our business has grown from strength to strength, from exporting to China, working with online retailer Ocado and supplying Wagamama and Thai Leisure Group.
Keep an eye on our future developments, as we’re always creating new exciting flavours to bring to the ice cream industry.
