Fresh gelato and sorbet hand made every day in Maleny
The team at Maleny Food Co. are passionate about what they do, simply put by owner Norman Scott.
“We make the best gelato and sorbet in Australia right here in Maleny; combining the rich Guernsey milk and cream from a local farm, with the finest Queensland and Italian flavour ingredients”.
These delicious award winning products are made every day at the purpose built facility in Maleny, it’s a handcrafted process using traditional artisan techniques.
“We start the day by collecting fresh Guernsey milk and cream from a local family farm that we know produces the best quality milk in an environmentally sustainable way.” Norman explains.
Made in small batches the base mixture is churned rather than whipped to produce the perfect rich and creamy texture. The flavours are then hand stirred through to create delicious combinations such as cherry ripe, lychee chocolate and ginger and the popular crème caramel.
“It’s our commitment to quality that makes the difference, we know where our ingredients come from and the story behind the producers”, Norman says.
It’s well worth the scenic drive up to Maleny in the Hinterland to discover the Maleny Food Co café where you will be greeted with a warm welcome and can enjoy a great coffee and the deli-style dining.
You will be surprised by the well-stocked walk in fromagerie with more than 200 Australian and International cheese. A “foodie” experience for any cheese lover, especially those that who know their d’Affiniois and Taleggio or enjoy the hard to find Fromart raw milk Swiss cheese.
Off course you will find it hard to leave without tasting the delicious gelato and sorbet.
You can also enjoy Maleny Food Co. gelato and sorbet at a growing number of restaurants, gelato shops, and selected boutique grocers across the Sunshine Coast.
