Science Cream

Super premium handcrafted ice cream, frozen to order, right in front of you in seconds. IMG_1300 (1)The theatrical plumes of vapor erupting from out nitro canisters, instantly freeze the custard base, creating a smooth, intense scoop with almost no ice crystals.

The ice creams superbly smooth texture is unlike any other ice cream and everything we sell, from cookie sandwiches to milkshakes topped with peanut butter brownies and flame toasted veggie marshmallow, is handcrafted in our little ice cream parlour in Cardiff.Owen Mathias Photography

In 2016, we featured in both the UK and Cardiff editions of The Guardian’s Best Cheap Eats. Their resident food critic Tony Naylor placed our ice cream on par with Heston Blumenthal’s, writing: “Remarkable… Frankly, how can you pass up the chance to try some of the best ice cream this side of Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck?”. That same year we also featured in The Times’ Top Ten Ice Cream Parlours in the UK, Olive magazine’s Top Twelve Best Family Friendly Venues and BuzzFeed’s 17 Ice Creams To Try Before You Die.

My style is warm, romantic and modern, using light and scenery to frame the moment.

I love to take relaxed portraits in natural surroundings, and capture genuine emotion and atmosphere of the day – to show the warmth, happiness and love, so when you look at your photos years later you remember the feeling of that day.

#Cwtchfest2017 Spotlight: Ffwrnes

Ffwrnes

We are Ffwrnes. Two friends from school, one from Llanelli, the other from Trimsaran, making traditional Neapolitan pizza with a nod to Wales. Everything is handmade!
Wedding_Funghi
Our dough is traditional Neapolitan, homemade from a family recipe and always fermented two ways for a minimum of 24 hours, giving it a deep flavour and light texture. This is topped with our sauce, sweet, deep red San Marzano tomatoes(DOP), a must for true Neapolitan pizza.
For our toppings we use a variety of producers that span the length and breadth of Wales. The Jiawl Bach(our take on a classic Diavola), uses spicy pepperoni from an amazing, award winning charcuterie in Monmouthshire and the chillies are grown and picked in Merthyr Tydfil. This theme runs through all our pizzas. We like to think that this is a brilliant combination, old-school Italian know-how meets the best locally sourced Welsh produce for the toppings.
Wedding_SamVanTan_Rosedew

The final piece of this jigsaw is the oven. This is what turns our Welsh-Italian combination from ‘brilliant’ to perfect! Our ovens are wood fired and are housed in our Piaggio vans, the Ape and Porter. Our little 3 wheel Ape, Smokey Pete, and his larger brother, the Porter, are regular fixtures in Italian towns and villages and their playful, and suitably quirky appearance would be an ideal fit for any occasion. This charm, style and playfulness represents what Ffwrnes is all about.
