Building from their signature sweet-cream recipe that was created by two French chefs, Marble Slab Creamery fashions more than 50 gourmet ice-cream flavours using fresh dairy cream. Customers select an ice-cream base from regular, seasonal, or lactose-free offerings ranging from chocolate swiss or vanilla bean to cheesecake, banana rum, and french toast. Dessert artisans then ladle the selection onto a frozen marble slab, where they churn and fold in up to three different nut, cookie, and real fruit mix-ins. Staff packs the resulting concoction into two one-litre containers for later consumption. To supply the needs of parties or jury trials, creamery chefs also shape ice cream into ornate cakes that serve six to eight people. Each morsel manifests from the customer’s choice of ice cream and mix-in additions, drizzled with sauces such as chocolate and caramel to create an elegant presentation. While waiting for their orders, guests bask in the aroma of baked waffle cones and the contented sighs of new ice-cream batches receiving their first massages.
Marble Slab Creamery
The Marble Slab Creamery sensory experience begins by just walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Gourmet ice creams are freshly crafted on site from Marble Slab’s original recipe, enticing customer's eyes with a rainbow of colours. Once clients have made a flavour selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice cream chef then hand-folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavour masterpiece into a house-made waffle cone.
In addition to procuring hand-held treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed litres, or in the capable hands of a catering team for sprucing up special events such a corporate get-togethers or school functions with sundae bars in tow.
