Ice Kitchen makes unforgettable artisan Ice Lollies, creating classics and twists on classics as well as surprising and unexpected flavour combinations.
We use only the very best fresh, natural ingredients with no artificial anything! Our ice lollies are made by hand in small batches daily, using fresh fruit, yoghurt, cream, nuts, chocolate, herbs and spices, and other natural flavourings.
Cesar Roden, chef and founder, feels there is an endless potential for delighting people with new tastes and iced experiences. Cesar’s family background in the culinary and visual arts have come together to create Ice Kitchen.
Our lollies are made for the discerning grown-up – but children love them too!
Ice Kitchen was born when Nadia Roden, named ‘The Ice Queen’ by Oprah Winfrey, started serving ice-lollies from a cart in Bryant Park and on the High Line in New York in 2011. There she created a sensation. Her nephew Cesar then launched Ice Kitchen carts at the Real Food Market on the South Bank, which were an instant hit. Ice Kitchen has since gone from strength to strength and this year won four Great Taste Awards, becoming the only ice-lolly producer to do so. Cesar has appeared with Alan Sugar on the BBC ONE show as a budding entrepreneur and creative chef, and on James Martin’s Home Comforts on BBC TWO.
In July 2014, Ice Kitchen released their hardback recipe book: ‘Ice Kitchen: 50 Lolly Recipes’. With unique recipes made by Cesar and Nadia, the book was listed as the No.1 bestseller in Amazon’s desserts and has since been published internationally in 15 countries.
Between 2014 and 2016, Ice Kitchen was awarded with a number of gold stars for our lollies, including our Rose and Pistachio, Raspberry and Fresh Mint, Fresh Mint and Dark Chocolate, Earl Grey tea, and our Mojito Poptail lollies.
After their best-selling 50 Lolly Recipes book, Cesar and Nadia Roden are back with a new, grown-up collection of alcoholic ice lollies. In April 2017, Ice Kitchen launched their brand new ‘Poptails’ book, a collection of 50 sensationally intoxicating cocktail lollies, written and created just for this book by Cesar and Nadia.
Since the very start of Ice Kitchen back in 2013, we continue to grow, and look forward to what the future brings!
